Alec Baldwin charged with involuntary manslaughter in shooting
Alec Baldwin will be charged with involuntary manslaughter over the fatal shooting of “Rust” cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, prosecutors announced Thursday.
Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies said in a statement that the film’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, who oversaw the weapons on set, will also be charged with involuntary manslaughter.
“After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the ‘Rust’ film crew,” Carmack-Altwies said.
“On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice,” she continued.
Hutchins died shortly after the “It’s Complicated” actor was rehearsing with a prop gun that went off on Oct. 21, 2021. She was 42.
The movie’s director, Joel Souza, was also wounded, but Carmack-Altwies said Thursday that no charges will be filed specific to Souza’s injuries.
