An Arizona man was named a “person of interest” in court documents related to the Las Vegas shooting that took place Oct. 1, 2017, that left 58 people dead and hundreds injured.

Douglas Haig’s name appeared Tuesday after a Nevada court judge released nearly 300 documents related to the case. While the documents did not reveal any details about the suspects in the case, one of the pages revealed Haig’s name. However, the documents did not disclose many details about Haig or his involvement in the shooting.

In a statement to the Associated Press, Haig said he had met the shooter, Stephen Paddock, once for an ammunition deal.

Speaking from his home in Mesa, Arizona, Haig said: “I am the guy who sold ammunition to Stephen Paddock.”

Though he did not reveal further details, Haig said he planned to hold a press conference later in the week in an attempt to answer questions related to his involvement in the case, according to reports.

In October, a law enforcement official told the AP that Paddock had bought about 1,000 rounds of ammunition from an anonymous seller. However, it was unclear at the time whether the seller was Haig.

According to his LinkedIn profile page, Haig owns a website named “Specialized Military Ammunition LLC,” which specializes in selling premium, tracer and incendiary ammunition in popular military calibers. However, the website has now been closed for an indefinite period.

Initially, Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, was named a “person of interest” in the investigation. She was detained and later released by the Las Vegas Police Department after they carried out an investigation into her alleged involvement in the shooting.

Originally from the Philippines, Danley lived in Australia for quite some time before moving to the U.S. When she was asked at the time about her involvement in the shooting, she said: “I can’t comment at the moment. I can’t say anything. I’m sorry, sorry.”

Paddock's motive remains unknown.

Paddock, 64, opened fire on a crowd of 22,000 concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas from his hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Country singer Jason Aldean was performing on the stage when the shots were fired, with many in attendance not immediately taking cover during the confusion.

Fifty-eight people died in the shooting, and 851 were injured. It remains the deadliest mass shooting by a lone gunman in the U.S.
