Alarming Report Surfaces on Gun Alec Baldwin Used in Fatal Shooting

Staff October 27, 2021 Current Events — Mobile, Partners, Subscribers Comments Off on Alarming Report Surfaces on Gun Alec Baldwin Used in Fatal Shooting

A shocking report reveals what happened on the morning of the tragic shooting incident involving Hollywood’s Alec Baldwin.

Crew members on the movie set reportedly used the firearm on the morning of the fatal accident for “leisure shooting.”

It was later fired by Baldwin while he was “practicing drawing his gun,” CNN reported.

In the morning, the gun was used to go “plinking.”

This is a hobby in which people shoot at beer cans with live ammunition for fun.

The shooting resulted in the death of Halyna Hutchins, who was working as the director of photography.

Director Joel Souza was injured and survived.

A search warrant executed by the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s office showed that armorer Hanna Gutierrez Reed handled the prop gun.

Reed left the weapon on a cart outside the set location they were filming.

Assistant director Dave Halls then retrieved the gun and handed it to actor Alec Baldwin announcing that it was a “cold gun,” Fox News reported.

The term indicates that a prop gun is safe to handle and not loaded with live ammunition. However, this was false.

The gun had live ammunition loaded.

More from Fox News:

In a previous statement, issued to multiple outlets, Rust Movie Productions said: “The safety of our cast and crew is the top priority of Rust Productions and everyone associated with the company. Though we were not made aware of any official complaints concerning weapon or prop safety on set, we will be conducting an internal review of our procedures while production is shut down. We will continue to cooperate with the Santa Fe authorities in their investigation and offer mental health services to the cast and crew during this tragic time.”

Regardless of whether or not the firearms were improperly in proximity or loaded with live rounds, experts say there are systems in place to ensure prop guns are inspected before they enter an active set. As a result, Gutierrez Reed, Halls and Baldwin could be subject to a myriad of criminal or legal ramifications.

Souza said in the warrant that the cast and crew prepared the scene before lunch and then had their meal away from the shooting location around 12:30 p.m. He was not sure if the gun was checked again when everyone returned from lunch.

However, he stated that firearms are supposed to be checked by the armorer followed by the assistant director before handing them to the actor. He said he was not sure if people were checked for live ammunition on their person, but stated that live ammunition should not have been anywhere near the scene in question.
