There’s a new twist in the events that happened on the set of the movie Rust that sadly ended with the death of Halyna Hutchins at the hands of Alec Baldwin. The company that was in charge of providing the ammunition for the guns used in the movie declared today on Good Morning America via their weapons expert that they had not supplied the live rounds to the set of the movie.
This revelation is certainly set to add another layer of intrigue to the whole case. At this point in time people still have more questions than answers about happened on that day. The lawsuits filled against Baldwin personally and the production team have yet to produce credible evidence to explain what really went down.
Where We Currently Stand In Trying To Figure Out What Happened On The Set Of The Movie Rust
As was probably expected given the tragic outcome of the incident virtually anyone who could be blamed for the shooting has come out and defended themselves. Recently, the script supervisor in the movie pointed out that Baldwin wasn’t even supposed to fire the gun in that particular scene. While the weapons expert on set can’t seem to track down how live rounds even got into the gun. Now, it looks like none really knows how live rounds got onto the set in the first place!
What The Rust Ammunition Supplier Is Saying About The Rounds Delivered To The Set
Seth Kenney, of PDQ Arm & Prop was one of the first people that was interviewed by police when the shooting took place. We’ve now learned that the statement that he gave publicly after the shooting isn’t exactly what he told the cops. Publicly he had this to say about the rounds,
“It’s not a possibility that they came from PDQ or from myself personally,”
When he was asked by the police he provided another potential explanation. What could’ve happened was that the dummy rounds got mixed in with “recycled ammunition” that he had gotten from a friend a couple of years back. When on Good Morning America this Thursday though he did not address his statement to the police. He instead defended the protocol that his company goes through before they send out ammunition to movie sets. On that end he mentioned,
“When we send dummy rounds out, they get individually rattle tested before they get sent out,” While going on to add, “So if you have a box of 50, you’ve got to do it 50 times. And at that point you know they’re safe to send.”
Meanwhile, Baldwin Is Saying He Didn’t Point The Gun At Hutchins
At this point it’s anyone’s guess what really happened that day. We’ve got an ammo company that says they didn’t send live rounds to the set. A weapons supervisor on set who claims that she has no idea how live rounds got into the gun. Now Baldwin mentioned in his highly anticipated interview with ABC news that he did not even fire the gun!
“I would never point a gun at anyone and pull a trigger at them. Never.”
Yet, Halyna Hutchins is no longer with us …
