Alec Baldwin and Halyna Hutchin shooting case see’s new update.
The location manager, who was in charge of the shooting, revealed that four people were responsible for checking the gun, including the “Rust” actor Baldwin, that killed Hutchins.
Later, the Wrap said one of the guns was handed over to Baldwin, who allegedly accidentally fired the gunshot that killed Halyna Hutchins and wounded Joel Souza, the movie director.
“There’s this pastime that crew members sometimes do. It’s called ‘plinking,’ and they go out into the rural areas and they shoot at beer cans. This is with live ammunition. We learned that this happened the morning of the day that Halyna Hutchins was killed,” – said Waxman.
The incident took place right before the “Plinking” hours, a pastime for the crew members in which they use live ammunition. Waxman revealed to CNN that “Plinking” is common for them during the down hours of the shoot.
The Wrap’s reporting is yet to be confirmed.
When officials asked The Wrap for comment on the recent reporting, the movie producers pointed back to their previous statement that they gave to news outlets, saying, “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.”
The search warrant affidavit reads Souza’s statement that the shooting incident happened when Baldwin was practicing his scene by drawing his prop gun that injured her shoulder and killed Hutchins.
The warrant also documents Souza’s statement that three people had been handling the prop guns, which were passed to the actor after being checked by the armorer and assistant director. The shooting incident happened on Thursday at Bonanza Creek Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
