According to Santa Fe’s district attorney, actor Alec Baldwin could be charged in the shooting on the “Rust” movie set that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins last October. NBC News’ Miguel Almaguer has the details.
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.
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.
