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.
