‘Rust’ Movie Shooting: Updates on the Tragic Case as Armorer Found Guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter

Cast and crew members from the movie Rust grieved the tragic death of Los Angeles-based cinematographer Halyna Hutchins after actor Alec Baldwin misfired a prop gun that killed Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza. 

Baldwin discharged a prop gun around 1:50 p.m. local time at the Bonanza Creek Ranch in New Mexico on October 21, 2021, injuring both 42-year-old Hutchins, the movie’s photography director, and the Western film’s director.  

Hutchins was airlifted to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where she was pronounced dead. More than two years later, the armorer on set, Hannah Gutierrez, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
