Santa Fe police have released footage taken immediately after a camerawoman was fatally shot while filming a movie starring Hollywood star Alec Baldwin (64) was created last October. These include police bodycam footage, photos and videos from the crime scene, and text messages between film crew members in the days before and after the incident, the New York Times reported, citing New Mexico police.
The sheriff’s office also announced that the investigation was ongoing and important findings were still missing, the newspaper and other media wrote. One of the photos published by the British news agency PA shows rescue workers treating camerawoman Halyna Hutchins (42) on set after the shot. Another image comes from the video of a body cam and shows Baldwin according to the information after the fatal shot that had come out of his gun.
The fatal incident occurred while filming the low-budget western “Rust” at a Santa Fe movie ranch. Director Joel Souza was hit in the shoulder. Baldwin, who served as lead actor and producer on the film, had used the gun in rehearsal for one scene. Investigations revealed that the Colt had a real bullet lodged in it. Police investigations into how this happened are ongoing.
