LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - An Arizona man has been sentenced to 13 months in federal prison after selling home-loaded bullets to the gunman who killed 58 people in a Las Vegas Strip shooting in October 2017.

Douglas Haig also was sentenced Tuesday in Las Vegas to three years of supervised release. Haig wasn’t accused of a direct role in the outdoor concert shooting that also injured more than 850 people. He pleaded guilty last November to illegally manufacturing ammunition. He acknowledged making tracer and armor-piercing bullets at a home workshop in Mesa, Arizona, and selling them at gun shows and on the internet.
