Officials confirmed on Wednesday that live bullets, including the round it is believed killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza, were found on the set of the movie “Rust” last week after actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun during a rehearsal.
In an affidavit, “Rust” assistant director Dave Halls admitted to investigators that he “should have checked all” the rounds in the gun before handing it to Alec Baldwin at the fatal shooting at the movie set, but had not done so.
During the rehearsal, assistant director saw that there were three bullets in the prop gun, but he does not remember turning the drum. The gun was opened after the incident, and there were at least four real bullets in it, Halls assured.
