Santa Fe County Sheriff Releases Video of Rattled Alec Baldwin Right after Fatal Shooting

Authorities released footage of the aftermath of Hollywood star Alec Baldwin’s fatal shooting on the movie set Rust.

A rattled Baldwin is seen telling investigators he felt “no recoil” when he inadvertently fired a .45-caliber Old West revolver.

He says: “When I shot the gun, away from the cameraman, I never aim the gun at the camera, I turned and I went like this”(making a gun with his fingers).

“And she was there. And the gun went off. And she just went right on the ground. So there’s a chance that it was actually a dummy that was defective?” Baldwin says later.

“I’ve never heard of that.”

“Once again Alec, Mr. Baldwin, I want you to know that we are trying not to provide as much information to the media,” a sheriff can be heard saying.

“They have been calling the office of our PIO (public information officer) nonstop.”

Injured director Joel Souza says: “A very loud bang, and it felt like somebody kicked me in the shoulder.

“And then I was down on my a–, and then I look over and see the cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, with blood coming out of her back…I think it went through her and into me.”

Armorer Hanna Gutierrez Reed says: “I’m their armorer. Or at least I was. I’m supposed to check the guns and I load the guns and I hand the guns off to the actor.”

First assistant director David Halls said:

“This movie is done,” he told deputies. “It’s too scarred. The director of photography was killed. The director was injured. Alec Baldwin was involved.”

“I think it’s clear what happened,” Brian Panish, the lead attorney for Hutchins’ husband and son, told reporters in February.

“Alec had the gun in his hand. He shot it. Halyna was killed.”

According to Fox News:

Investigators looking into the on-set shooting released a trove of files Monday in connection with the incident that left Hutchins dead and director Joel Souza injured. Minutes after the gunfire, Baldwin is shown asking about Hutchin’s condition.

The files include interviews with key witnesses at the scene and later in the sheriff’s office, including Baldwin, first assistant director David Halls, armorer Hanna Gutierrez Reed, prop master Sarah Zachry as well as incident reports, crime scene photos and other evidence.

Baldwin tells his interviewers that “Hannah handed me the gun,” referencing the armorer and contradicting contemporaneous police reports that stated Halls had handed Baldwin the gun and told him it was “cold” or safe, before the incident.
