What happened to Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was indeed a terrible accident? But was it really an accident?
As the day goes by, more and more questions arise but only a few answers are available.
Recently, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, the armorer for the movie “Rust” where Alec Baldwin is the star-producer has broken her silence about the accident.
“The woman in charge of weapons on the movie set where actor Alec Baldwin fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins said Wednesday night that she had inspected the gun Baldwin shot but doesn’t know how a live bullet ended up inside.”
The statement adds that she inspected the rounds before handing the firearm to assistant director David Halls “by spinning the cylinder and showing him all of the rounds and then handing him the firearm.”
Hannah said in her statement, “Who put those in there and why is the central question, No one could have anticipated or thought that someone would introduce live rounds into this set.”
Hannah claims that she did train Alec Baldwin with ‘Gun Safety’ and claims that she “fought” for more training days and specifically told Baldwin not to point a gun at anyone.
On the other hand, one of the lawyers for Hannah Gutierrez Reed has confirmed a statement, “Hannah kept guns locked up, including throughout lunch on the day in question (Oct. 21), and she instructed her department to watch the cart containing the guns when she was pulled away for her other duties or on a lunch break.”
This is so clear that Hannah blames the movie producers for what happened and it so happened that the top producer for the movie is none other than Alec Baldwin himself.
