The crew members who gave Alec Baldwin a fatal prop gun have been identified.

Armourer Hannah Gutierrez Reed, who has been identified on the set’s call sheet, set three prop guns on a cart outside the filming location, and assistant director Dave Halls grabbed the revolver from the cart and brought it inside to Baldwin, mistakenly believing it was unloaded, a search warrant revealed.

Halls stated that the gun was ‘cold, meaning that it was safe to fire for the scene, before handing it to Baldwin.

Seconds later, Baldwin aimed towards the camera and pulled the trigger, killing Hutchins who was filming him and injuring director Joel Souza, who was standing behind her.

Halls is a seasoned assistant director, having amassed production credits on a number of films involving prop guns, including Fargo, The Matrix Reloaded, and the TV cop series Reno 911.

In 2000, Halls was the second unit’s first assistant director on the show The Crow: Salvation, the sequel to the film in which Bruce Lee’s son Brandon Lee was killed in an on-set firearms mishap in 1993.Once You Bet Here, You Won’t Want To Bet Anywhere Else.888SPORTTry NowSponsored Link by Taboola
