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 the 1 October shooting in 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. 

Haig will begin serving the sentence in October.
