Alec Baldwin’s Victims Released Video Animation of the Shooting

Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died in a shooting on the set of Alec Baldwin’s movie “Rust.” Now her family is filing a civil suit against Baldwin.

Back in October, the actor was in the middle of filming a scene in a church building when he drew his gun and fired at the camera. The gun was not loaded with blanks but instead had a live round of ammunition inside of it, the round went through the chest of Halyna Hutchins and ended up hitting one of the directors in the shoulder.

The lawyers representing the family of Halyna Hutchins have released a short animated video depicting what happened on the set of “Rust”. You can watch the video below, but know that it is a graphic depiction of what happened.

Other details from the case that became public after the initial shooting include testimony from the sets armorer who is alleging that Baldwin refused to take cross draw training prior to the scene where the shooting occurred and that she was dismissed from the set and told that they were not filming with firearms at the time of the shooting.

There is plenty of liability to go around, if what the armorer said is true then Baldwin could be facing more than a civil suit. That all being said, it is unlikely that an actor like Alec Baldwin will face any consequences for what can only be described as gross negligence.

  1. Like I’ve said before, if you know anything about guns, ya can’t shoot and kill someone by accident.

  2. Older single action revolvers without a transfer bar will fire if dropped OR if you pull the hammer most of the way back and then let it go, like when your finger slips off of the hammer, That’s why modern single action revolvers have a transfer bar and RUGER FIREARMS will upgrade their older models for free. That is why SAFE HANDLING classes are essential when handling older model single actions!!
