Accidente de Alec Baldwin en el set de 'Rust' - Las autoridades presentan las primeras conclusiones

New Mexico authorities briefed the media Wednesday and gave new details about the recent fatal shooting on the filmset of "Rust," revealing Alec Baldwin was handling a vintage Colt 45 revolver when a lead projectile fired and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza. Souza was standing behind Hutchins when Baldwin drew the gun and fired. Sheriff Adan Mendoza said the projectile in Souza's shoulder had been removed and is believed to have come from the gun Baldwin was handling on set. He described a culture of "complacency" on the set regarding firearms. The officials said Baldwin and other witnesses on set were cooperating with authorities. The producers of "Rust" have also hired the law firm of Jenner & Block to conduct an investigation, sending a letter to those involved with production notifying them of Jenner's involvement Tuesday night. Mendoza said his office had executed search warrants and recovered 600 items of evidence including three firearms and 500 rounds of ammunition.
