Alec Baldwin Was Told Gun in Fatal Shooting on Set Was Safe, Officials Say

The artist was informed a pistol being used as a prop was safe before he fired it on the set of “Rust,” killing the film’s cinematographer and wounding its director, police officials said.

On a ranch in northern New Mexico, where the cottonwoods and the dusty foothills have formed the backdrop of Westerns since the 1950s, Alec Baldwin was shooting a new film on Thursday afternoon when his character, an outlaw, needed a gun.

An assistant director grabbed one of three prop guns that the film’s armorer had set up outside on a gray cart, handed it to Mr. Baldwin, and, according to an affidavit signed by Detective Joel Cano of the Santa Fe County sheriff’s office, yelled “Cold Gun!”– which was intended to indicate that the gun did not have any live rounds in it.

When Mr. Baldwin fired the gun, police officials said, it struck and killed the film’s cinematographer and injured its director– and raised new doubts about firearms safety on film sets.

The assistant director “did not know live rounds were in the prop-gun” when he gave it to Mr. Baldwin, according to the affidavit, which was made as part of a search warrant application. The affidavit did not stipulate what kind of ammunition the gun had been loaded with.

The assistant director on the set of “Rust” where Alec Baldwin shot a prop gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins had in the past allowed an unsafe working environment on productions, according to a prop maker who worked with him.

Dave Halls “at first he seemed like an older, affable first [assistant director] with the usual run of idiosyncrasies, but that facade soon disappeared,” according to prop maker Maggie Goll, who said she was contacted to work on Hulu’s “Into the Dark” anthology series in February 2019.

” He did not maintain a safe working environment,” Goll said in a detailed statement to NBC News. “Sets were almost always allowed to become considerably claustrophobic, no established fire lanes, exits blocked … safety meetings were nonexistent.”

According to court documents, Halls gave the prop gun to Baldwin before the fatal shooting at the Bonanza Ranch in New Mexico, indicating wrongly that the weapon did not have live shots by yelling “cold gun.”

The gun was one of three that the film’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez, had set on a cart outside the wooden structure where a scene was being acted, according to the records. Assistant director Dave Halls grabbed the gun from the cart and brought it inside to Baldwin, unaware that it was loaded with live rounds, a detective wrote in the search warrant application.

It was unclear how many rounds were actually fired. Gutierrez removed a shell casing from the gun after the shooting, and she turned the weapon over to authorities when they showed up, the court records say.

Halls did not instantly return phone and email messages seeking remark. The Associated Press was unable to get in touch with Gutierrez, and several emails sent to production agencies affiliated with the film were not promptly returned Friday.

The film’s script supervisor, Mamie Mitchell, said she was standing next to Hutchins when she was shot.

” I ran out and called 911 and said ‘Bring everybody, send everybody,'” Mitchell told The Associated Press. “This woman is gone at the beginning of her career. She was an extraordinary, rare, very rare woman.”

Mitchell explained she and various other crew members were participating in a private funeral Friday night in Santa Fe.

Baldwin characterized the killing as a “tragic accident.”

A distraught Baldwin was captured on film outside a hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on Saturday embracing and talking with Matt Hutchins, the husband of Halyna Hutchins, and their nine-year-old child.

Alec Baldwin has been seen consoling the family members of the cinematographer he accidentally killed on the set of his movie, as further reports emerged on Sunday of bothering exercises during the shooting of the Western “Rust”.

Baldwin’s stunt double accidentally fired two rounds Saturday after being informed that the gun was “cold”– terminology for a weapon that doesn’t have any ammunition, including blanks– two crew members who witnessed the episode told the Los Angeles Times.
