Alec Baldwin indicted for fatal on-set shooting: ‘Sufficient evidence’

US actor Alec Baldwin faces manslaughter charges for the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie “Rust”. The New Mexico District Attorney said so. Both Baldwin and on-set weapons supervisor Hannah Gutierrez-Reed will face charges of involuntary manslaughter over Hutchins’ death on the set of the film, which was filming in Santa Fe County. Assistant Director David Halls signed a plea deal on charges of negligent use of a deadly weapon, the district attorney’s office said.

No specific charges will be made for the non-fatal injury on the same shoot to “Rust” director Joel Souza. “After a thorough review of the evidence and state of New Mexico law, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew,” said District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies. . “Under my jurisdiction, no one is above the law and everyone deserves justice.”
