Alec Baldwin Rust – Ammunition Found Stored in Fanny Pack on ‘Rust’ Film Set, Where Alec Baldwin Fatally Shot Cinematographer

Investigators searching the New Mexico set of Rust found ammunition—boxed, loose, and stored in a fanny pack—while looking into the circumstances of last week’s fatal shooting of the film’s cinematographer. Halyna Hutchins was killed by actor and producer Alec Baldwin after a gun he was handling that was not supposed to contain live rounds went off. An inventory of the items discovered was filed in court on Monday; it also listed three revolvers and spent casings. The inventory’s details were scant, and it is still unknown what kind of ammunition was found. An expert consulted by The New York Times said that ammunition should be kept in a labeled box. “The fact that there is loose ammunition and casings raises questions about the organization of the armory department,” he said.

Alec Baldwin Was Told Gun in Deadly Shooting on Set Was Safe, Officials Explain

The artist was told a pistol being used as a prop was safe before he discharged 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 filming a new motion picture on Thursday afternoon when his character, an outlaw, required a gun.

An assistant director picked up 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 designed to identify that the gun did not have any live rounds in it.

When Mr. Baldwin fired the gun, police officials said, it hit and killed the film’s cinematographer and wounded its director– and raised new uncertainties 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 define 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 previously allowed an unsafe working setting 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 called 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 more and more claustrophobic, no reputable fire lanes, exits blocked … safety meetings were nonexistent.”

According to court files, Halls gave the prop gun to Baldwin before the fatal shooting at the Bonanza Ranch in New Mexico, attesting incorrectly that the weapon did not carry live shells by shouting “cold gun.”

The gun was just 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 uncertain the number of rounds were actually fired. Gutierrez removed a shell casing from the gun after the shooting, and she gave the weapon over to authorities when they arrived, the court records say.

Halls did not instantly return phone and email messages seeking comment. The Associated Press was unable to get in touch with Gutierrez, and several communications sent off to production firms associated with the film were not instantly 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 stated she and some other crew members were participating in a private commemoration Friday night in Santa Fe.

Baldwin detailed the killing as a “tragic accident.”

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

Alec Baldwin has been seen soothing the family members of the cinematographer he accidentally killed on the set of his movie, as further reports surfaced on Sunday of troubling exercises during the filming of the Western “Rust”.

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