New video shows moments before and after Rust cinemaphotographer is shot on set

US News

Never-seen-before footage has been released of the moments before and after Rust cinemaphotographer Halyna Hutchins was killed on set.

New Mexico Police has made public all the files associated with the ongoing criminal investigation into her death.

One of the clips shows police and medics racing to the scene, with bodycam footage showing first responders battling to save Hutchins. Another shows Hollywood star Alec Baldwin rehearsing pulling the gun that eventually killed her.

Cinematographer Hutchins died after a prop gun held by Baldwin fired a live round during rehearsals in October 2021.

The actor was one of the producers of the Western, as well as its star.

With Hutchins behind the camera lining up her last ever scene, the new footage shows Baldwin sitting inside a church, dressed in period Western costume, whipping out the revolver that apparently misfired and left the cinematographer dead and the film’s director Joel Souza injured.

There are also moments filmed from another officer’s lapel camera in hospital with Mr Souza.

The director tells police he heard a “loud bang”.

He adds: “It felt like someone had kicked me in the shoulder – and then I was down on my ass”.

“Then I looked over and saw the cinemaphotographer with blood coming out of her back.”

It shows doctors removing the bullet that travelled through Ms Hutchins and into his shoulder.

At that point, he does not yet know his colleague and friend has been fatally wounded.

Other footage features the film’s armourer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed who was responsible for the safety of guns on set.

She had previously said she was “devastated and completely beside herself over the events that transpired”.

She is now suing the weapon’s provider, alleging he supplied a mismarked box of ammunition containing live rounds.

The full police records released on Monday include crime scene photos, bodycam footage, staff photos, dashcam film and other evidence that has been collected since the incident.

Last week a report into the incident on set found management “knew that firearm safety procedures were not being followed“.

New Mexico safety regulators fined the film company a maximum $139,793 (£107,019) after an “avoidable loss of life occurred”.

There could still be criminal charges brought.
