Oyogist.com has learned the court has stated that the gun that actor Alec Baldwin fired on set, killing a woman, was handed to him by a director who told him it was safe.

Recall that American actor, Alec Baldwin, had accidentally discharged a prop gun on a movie set on Thursday, leading to the death of the film’s director of photography and injury of its director.

Assistant director Dave Halls did not know the prop contained live ammunition and indicated it was unloaded by shouting “cold gun!”, the records say.

Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot in the chest in Thursday’s incident on the set of the film Rust.

Director Joel Souza, who was standing behind her, was wounded.

The 48-year-old received emergency treatment for a shoulder injury and was later released from hospital.

Further details of the police investigation were released on Friday when a search warrant was filed at a court in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

It noted that Baldwin’s blood-stained outfit was taken as evidence along with the gun. Ammunition and other prop weapons were also taken from the set by police.

No immediate charges have been filed, and sheriff’s spokesman Juan Rios said Baldwin, 63, was permitted to travel.

“He’s a free man,” Rios said.

Meanwhile on Saturday, Baldwin attended a memorial held for Hutchins and he has reportedly been distraught by the incident.
