POLL RESULTS: Should criminal charges be filed in ‘Rust’ shooting incident?


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Investigators say there was “some complacency” on the set of the movie Rust, where Alec Baldwin accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded the movie’s director.

During a news conference this morning investigators say they found 500 rounds of ammunition on the set, including a mix of blanks, dummy bullets and live rounds.

Santa Fe County Sheriff Adan Mendoza said it’s too soon to determine whether charges will be filed.
