So 5 days after her death, there are some light now as to what really led to what, which led to the dead of the American, Ukraine born Cinematographer. This is the most detailed Account Of How Alec Baldwin Shot Halyna Hutchins Dead while shooting a movie a titled RUST on Thursday 21st October.
Despite Alec Baldwin taking full responsibility, making himself available for investigations, showing up at the private memorial and extending his warm support to Halyna’s husband and their 9-year-old son, it still doesn’t mean that an an old tweet of where he said “I wonder how it must feel to wrongfully kill someone” doesn’t make things look bad for him.
There has been several talks and few reports here and there as to what really aspired, but there’s been no detailed narrative that explained what really happened, truth be told, ever since the accidental discharge that lead to the death of Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, there hasn’t been any detailed account of what really happened, or the events that led to this unfortunate demise of this talent. So this is the best thing to a detailed explanation that you can get (for now)
Alec Baldwin was rehearsing a scene that involved pointing a revolver “towards the camera lens” when the gun — which the crew had been told did not contain live rounds — suddenly went off and killed the cinematographer, according to the film’s director, who was quoted in an affidavit released Sunday night.
The gun had been declared a “cold gun” — an unloaded firearm — during the film set’s firearm safety announcements, according to Souza.
Reid Russell, a cameraman, said that Baldwin was explaining how he would draw the gun and was pulling it out of the holster when the discharge happened.
Prior to the fatal shooting, a number of crew members on “Rust” had quit over safety conditions and late pay.
According to an affidavit released Sunday night, Souza explains that Baldwin was rehearsing a scene that involved pointing a revolver “towards the camera lens” when the gun discharged. Because it was a rehearsal, there is no filmed footage of the moment the discharge happened.
And so far accounts on the affidavit still don’t answer the question as to how the gun Baldwin used ended up containing live ammunition
