Police to Search Arms Supplier over Fatal Film Shooting
Police investigating the fatal shooting on the set of the Alec Baldwin movie Rust have obtained a further warrant to search the premises of an arms supplier in the US.
Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died and director Joel Souza was injured in October, when Baldwin was practicing drawing a prop gun.
An affidavit with the warrant said police were told ammunition for the film had come from several sources, including PDQ Arm & Prop.
The affidavit said the ammunition supplier’s owner, Seth Kenney, had told investigators the live round may have been from some “reloaded ammunition”.
He said the ammunition he supplied for the film consisted of dummy rounds and blanks, according to the affidavit.
A lawsuit against Baldwin, who was the film’s star and producer, alleges that the script did not require him to fire a gun at the time when Hutchins was fatally wounded.
