CHANDLER, AZ (AP) -

A Mesa man plans to speak out about his experience in selling ammunition to the gunman in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

Douglas Haig is scheduled to hold a news conference Friday morning in Chandler to discuss his sale to Stephen Paddock.

This week, Haig said he couldn't detect anything wrong with Paddock.

Haig was named as a "person of interest" in the Oct. 1 shooting in Las Vegas that killed 58 people.

But a law enforcement official has since told The Associated Press that Haig isn't believed to have committed a federal crime or to have had any knowledge of the attack.

The official wasn't authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

It's unknown whether the ammunition Haig sold to Paddock was used in the attack.
