Deputies pass Rust shooting investigation report to district attorney
The release of police videos from last year’s fatal shooting on the set of “Rust” has people pouring over each frame. But the family of the cinematographer who was killed is questioning why so much evidence was released during an active investigation. Among the videos are clips of Alec Baldwin rehearsing the scene that would end in Hutchins’ accidental death. Three hours later, at the sheriff’s office, investigators read him his Miranda rights before questioning.
It’s just-released bodycam video of cops investigating the tragic accidental shooting of Hylina Hutchins, the cinematographer killed on the set of Alec Baldwin’s movie “Rust.” Baldwin is still wearing his cowboy wardrobe as police start taking evidence photos. Officers grab medical equipment from a vehicle and race into the church where grievously wounded Hutchins is lying on the ground. We also see Hannah Gutierez, the production’s armorer, being questioned.
The husband of slain cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who was killed last October in an accidental shooting on the set of Alec Baldwin’s film “Rust,” is speaking out in his first TV interview. Matthew Hutchins had some harsh words for Baldwin while speaking with Hoda Kotb on “Today.” He says in a preview of the interview that he finds it shocking that Baldwin seems to be portraying himself as the victim. “I just feel like, are we really supposed to feel bad about you, Mr. Baldwin?” Matthew said.
It’s been almost four months since the deadly accident on the set of “Rust” in New Mexico. Now, the family of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who was killed in the shooting, has filed a wrongful death suit against Alec Baldwin and the film’s producers. To support their case, they presented a graphic recreation of what they say happened during the fatal shooting. In an interview, Alec Baldwin denied responsibility for the cinematographer’s death and said he never pulled the trigger.
The Alec Baldwin fatal shooting during the film “Rust” has led to multiple lawsuits, including new details in a lawsuit filed by the family of Halyna Hutchins, who was killed by the actor during filming. Lawyers argued Baldwin and others on set were responsible for making sure the gun was safe to use and presented a recreation video that they say showed what happened when Hutchins was shot and killed. Baldwin has not been charged in connection with the case.
Alec Baldwin has voluntarily turned over his cell phone to police who are investigating the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his movie “Rust.” The actor’s attorney said Baldwin handed the device over on Friday with a statement saying that “the phone won’t provide any answers.”
