Baldwin, others may be charged over Rust on-set fatal shooting: prosecutor
Actor Alec Baldwin is among up to four people who may face charges in October for the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during filming of Rust, a New Mexico prosecutor says.
The final police report on the shooting in 2021 near Santa Fe, New Mexico is expected next month, at which time prosecutors will file criminal charges if warranted, district attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies told the state’s finance board.
Investigators are focusing on the “many individuals” who handled the pistol Baldwin fired during a rehearsal, killing Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza, Carmack-Altwies said in a letter to the board.
“One of the possible defendants is well-known movie actor Alec Baldwin,” she said in an August 30 letter requesting additional funding to prosecute the high-profile case.
