Alec Baldwin Trial Escalates: Watch Shocking Video From ‘Rust’ Set After Fatal Shooting

Santa Fe, New Mexico – Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin arrived at a Santa Fe courthouse where he is set to stand trial for the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie “Rust.”

Nearly three years ago, tragedy struck during a rehearsal of a shooting scene in the film, resulting in the death of Hutchins and the injury of director Joel Souza. Baldwin, 66, has maintained that he did not intentionally fire the prop gun and was unaware that it contained a live round, leading to the accidental discharge.

Facing a felony count of involuntary manslaughter from the incident in October 2021, Baldwin could potentially serve up to 18 months in prison if found guilty. His involvement as a co-producer on the movie was ruled as not relevant to the case during a recent pre-trial hearing.

Jury selection is currently underway in Santa Fe, with opening statements scheduled to begin on Wednesday. The trial follows the conviction of the movie’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, who was sentenced to 18 months in prison for involuntary manslaughter in April.

Baldwin’s trial has garnered significant attention, shedding light on the circumstances surrounding the tragic incident on the film set. The legal proceedings are expected to unfold over the coming days, as the court seeks to uncover the truth behind the events that led to the loss of life during the production of “Rust.”

As the trial progresses, the focus remains on seeking justice and accountability for the lives affected by the unfortunate shooting. With Baldwin at the center of the courtroom drama, the case serves as a stark reminder of the importance of firearm safety and the consequences of negligence in the entertainment industry.
