In October previous year, a law enforcement official told the AP that Paddock had bought around 1,000 rounds of ammunition from an anonymous seller.
"I never heard of the guy", said Paddock, who lives in Orlando, Florida.
So far, there is no any details about Douglas Haig, while the LVMPD and Federal Bureau of Investigation have no comment to the latest information, which was disclosed after local media sought the court to unseal the records related to the Route 91 Harvest festival shooting.
Haig sold Paddock ammunition the month before the October attack that killed 58 people dead and wounded hundreds of others.
Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo confirmed in a news conference earlier this month that authorities were investigating an additional person of interest, but he did not indicate how this person was connected to the investigation and continued to insist that Stephen Paddock acted alone when he fired at a group of 20,000 concertgoers attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival, killing 58 people before he shot himself in his suite at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
A US district judge ruled on Tuesday to unseal almost 300 pages of search warrant records issued by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) after the deadest mass shooting in the modern history of the United States last October.
He said he has no ties to Stephen Paddock. I still don't know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that I and my crew are safe. "And I can't remember whether he said for or with his friends, but that's what he did say", Haig said. Jerry MacDonald said that SWAT officers witnessed shooter Stephen Paddock's suicide inside of his Mandalay Bay hotel room. Specialized Military Ammunition's website says it is "closed indefinitely".
Newly unsealed police documents have identified a second person of interest from the October 1, 2017 mass shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas, according to multiple reports. By the time the judge had ordered the media outlets that received the documents not to publish his name, the Las Vegas Review-Journal report identifying him had already been published. Danley was in the Philippines at the time of the attack, and has been cooperating with investigators.
Authorities previously characterized Paddock as a gambler on a losing streak who was obsessed with cleanliness, may have been bipolar and was having difficulties with his live-in girlfriend.
Separately, Clark County District Court Judge Timothy Williams ruled Tuesday that the coroner in Las Vegas should release autopsy records of Paddock and the people killed by gunfire, with victims' names blacked out.
One was deceased shooter Stephen Paddock's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, who has since been publicly cleared in the case.
