According to court records, Baldwin was given a loaded weapon that killed Halyna Hutchins

According to court documents in the Alec Baldwin case, the actor was handed a loaded weapon by an assistant director who indicated it was safe to use moments before he fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

According to a search warrant filed in a Santa Fe court, the assistant director had no idea the prop gun was loaded with live rounds.

According to the records, Hutchins was shot in the chest, while Director Joel Souza, who was standing behind her, was also wounded.

The warrant was obtained on Friday in order for investigators to photograph the scene at the ranch where the shooting occurred. It mentions that Baldwin’s blood-stained costume from the Western film “Rust,” as well as the weapon fired, were taken as evidence.

Other prop guns and ammunition used in the film’s production were also seized by investigators.

Baldwin had earlier described the killing as a “tragic accident.” According to the sheriff’s office, Baldwin was performing at the time of the shooting. The number of rounds fired was unknown, and little was known about the weapon.

“There are no words to express my shock and sadness over the tragic accident that killed Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother, and highly regarded colleague of ours. I’m cooperating fully with the police investigation “Baldwin expressed his thoughts on Twitter.

“My heart breaks for her husband, their son, and everyone who knew and loved Halyna,” the tweet continued.

Juan Rios, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, said detectives were on the set Friday morning gathering evidence and information.

There were no immediate charges filed, and Baldwin is free to travel, he said.

Rios declared, “He’s a free man.”

Images of the 63-year-old actor, best known for his roles in “30 Rock” and “The Hunt for Red October,” as well as his “Saturday Night Live” impression of former President Donald Trump, showed him distraught outside the sheriff’s office on Thursday.

Guns used in movies are occasionally real weapons that can fire bullets or blanks, which are gunpowder charges that produce a flash and a bang but no lethal projectile. Even blanks, however, can eject hot gases and paper or plastic wadding from the barrel, both of which can be lethal at close range.
