The AP attorney returned the documents, but the other lawyer had already transmitted the documents and the Review-Journal published Douglas Haig's name online.

Clark County District Court Judge Elissa Cadish said Tuesday that her staff failed to black out the name in almost 300 pages of documents released to news organizations including The Associated Press and Las Vegas Review-Journal. An FBI spokeswoman told that outlet she could not immediately comment Tuesday.

Lombardo has said he expects a final report on the shooting to be released before the end of 2018. He searched "do police use explosives" on September 15, 2017, as well as "SWAT Las Vegas".

"I felt that they were hoping that they could find a connection between myself and Paddock, that would go back showing that I supplied him with most of his ammunition, possibly even some firearms", Haig said.

The court documents showed that early in the investigation, police believed Paddock may have had help. The court released almost 200 pages of records after the hearing.

Lombardo spoke to the number of shooters, saying, "I know and believe there was only one suspect who killed 58 people and injured hundreds more".
