Alec Baldwin was given what was described as a "cold gun" safe to use on the set of his film "Rust," but it contained live bullets when he was shot, according to police investigation details into the deadly shooting released Friday.



The shot hit photographer Lena Hutchins' chest and the shoulder of director Joel Sousa who was behind it, according to the district sheriff's affidavit filed in the Santa Fe Magistrate's Court. Hutchins died of her wounds and Sousa was injured, but has since been released from a local hospital. The director's assistant who handed Baldwin the gun did not know it contained live ammunition, according to an affidavit by Santa Fe Sheriff's Detective Joel Cano. The production of the film was stopped immediately.



Baldwin said yesterday (Friday) that he was in shock over the accidental shooting, while at the same time reports were published in the United States of workers leaving the "rust" set earlier this week due to unsafe conditions.

The "30 Rock" and "Red October Chase" star said he was "fully cooperating" with authorities to determine how the incident took place on Thursday.

The sheriff's department said no indictments had been filed and the investigation remained open.

Baldwin voluntarily made a statement about the shooting, the sheriff's department said.

The affidavit was filed Friday to obtain a search warrant for "Western-style clothing" worn by Baldwin, which appears to have blood stains, along with weapons, documentation, ammunition and cameras from the scene. The search warrant was approved by Judge Santa Fe. Detective Canoe said the incident occurred during a rehearsal at Bonanza Creek Farm, south of Santa Fe, and it is unclear if it was filmed.



He said the gun used as an accessory was one of three on a cart outside the building. One of them was taken by the film's assistant director, who came in and handed it to Baldwin. "While the assistant director handed the gun to actor Alec Baldwin, (he) shouted 'cold gun,' indicating that the accessory gun did not have live bullets," the affidavit said. During the investigation, questions were raised about working conditions on the set of "Rust," a small-budget western in which Baldwin starred and also co-produced it.



The Los Angeles Times and Deadline Hollywood quoted several crew members and production associates as saying that six or seven camera operators left the "Rust" set several hours before the tragedy.

Both sites also reported that there was at least one malfunction earlier with the gun used as an accessory.



"We mentioned everything, from non-payment for three weeks, the hotels that took us even though we asked for them in contracts, the lack of Corona safety, and besides, poor firearm safety! Poor safety in the set, period!", Wrote one of the camera crew members on his private Facebook account. , According to Deadline.

Reuters tried to verify the credibility of the Facebook accounts where things were written, but was unable to do so for the time being. The production of the film did not respond to a request for comment on Friday, but said in a statement that it was investigating. "Although we have not announced any official complaints regarding the safety of the weapons or accessories on the set, we will conduct an internal review of our procedures while production is shut down," the company said in a statement.



Baldwin, 63, expressed on Friday "shock and sadness over the tragic accident that claimed the life of Halina Hutchins," and said he is in touch with her partner and offers his support to him and his family. "My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and everyone who knew and loved the accommodation," he wrote. Hutchins representatives said in a statement that they "hope this tragedy will reveal new lessons that will better ensure the safety of every crew member on the set."



Halina Hatchins is a native of Ukraine. She studied journalism in Kiev and studied photography in Los Angeles. She was crowned a "rising star" by a movie magazine in 2019. Two days before her death she uploaded a documentary of herself on Instagram, riding a horse in the set of Santa Fe footage alongside several other people on the team. In the video you can see her face while on the horse, a cowboy hat on her head and a scarf covering the bottom of her face, and in the background the expanses of New Mexico. "One of the benefits of Western photography," Hutchins wrote in the accompanying text, "is that you can ride horses on your day off," she whispered in a smiley.



The accident resumed the debate over whether certain types of guns should be banned as accessories on sets of television footage and movies.

Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died at the age of 28 after being fatally wounded in 1993 by a gunshot gun in an accident on the set, while filming "The Crow."

"I do not understand why we're still using dummy balls at a time when you can simulate them," director and indie film producer Ben Rock told Reuters on Friday.
