    Alec Baldwin didn’t know weapon contained live round: warrant

    SANTA FE, N.M.– Alec Baldwin was handed a packed weapon by an assistant director who suggested it was safe to use in the minutes before the star fatally shot a cinematographer, court records released Friday show.

    The assistant director did not understand the prop weapon was loaded with live rounds, according to a search warrant submitted in a Santa Fe court.

    Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was shot in the chest. Director Joel Souza, who was guaranteeing her, was wounded, the records reveal.

    The warrant was gotten Friday so that investigators could document the scene at the cattle ranch where the shooting happened. It notes that Baldwin’s blood-stained outfit for the Western movie “Rust” was taken as proof, as was the weapon that was fired.

    Private investigators likewise seized other prop guns and ammo that were being utilized during shooting of the movie starring Baldwin.

    Previously in the day, Baldwin described the killing as a “terrible accident.” Baldwin was performing at the time of the shooting, the constable’s office stated. It was unclear how many rounds were fired, and little was learnt about the weapon.
