Mary Carmack-Altwies is the New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney. She is one of the key personalities involved in the case of Alec Baldwin fatally shooting a director of photography in the sets of the western movie Rust in an accident.
In a recent interview, Carmack said the media referring to the guns used in the sets of Rust as prop guns to be completely wrong, she argues it was a legit gun according to Reports.
“Criminal charges have not been ruled out, in the filming of Alec Baldwin’s film.”
On Tuesday, the Santa Fe County district attorney indicated she was not ruling out criminal prosecution in the fatal shooting on a movie set last week. Alec Baldwin was practicing with a gun that did not contain live ammo when it went off, killing the film’s cinematographer and wounding the director.
“We haven’t ruled anything out,” said Mary Carmack-Altwies, the district attorney, in a telephone interview. “At this point, everything is on the table, including criminal prosecution.”
The inquiry, according to Ms. Carmack-Altwies, is focusing on ballistics in order to figure out what kind of round was in the gun that murdered Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer, and who placed the ammo in the rifle.
“There were a lot of bullets on this set, and we need to figure out what kind of bullets they were,” Ms. Carmack-Altwies explained. According to an inventory of the items provided on Monday, detectives seized three revolvers, spent shells, and ammo — in boxes, loose, and in a fanny pack — while executing a search warrant on the set. The inventory did not state what type of ammo was discovered on the set.
Ms. Carmack-Altwies objected to the word “prop-gun” being used to describe the firearm used in the incident, claiming that the term, which appears in certain court records linked to the case, could create the false impression that it was not a real gun.
“It was a legitimate gun,” she stated, without specifying the type of weapon used. “It was a pistol that belonged in an archaic era.”
The investigation is being handled carefully by detectives
The investigation is being handled carefully by detectives from the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, she said, citing the high number of witnesses and the necessity to collect ballistics and forensic evidence meticulously.
The shooting occurred on Thursday on the set of a church where Mr. Baldwin was rehearsing a scene for “Rust,” a Western where he plays an outlaw. According to affidavits included in applications for search warrants, Dave Halls, an assistant director on the set, had gone outside the church and taken the gun off a cart, where it had been placed by the film’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed. Mr. Halls handed the gun to Mr. Baldwin, who was rehearsing inside the church, according to the affidavit, and said it was a “cold gun,” indicating that it contained no live rounds and was safe for Mr. Baldwin to handle.
Mr. Baldwin then rehearsed a scene that involved “cross drawing” a revolver and pointing it toward the camera lens, according to the affidavit, when the gun fired — striking Ms. Hutchins in the chest and killing her, and hitting the director of the film, Joel Souza, in the shoulder, wounding him.
Ms. Carmack-Altwies stated that detectives are still interviewing persons who worked on the set. “We’ll need weeks, if not months, of follow-up investigation to get to the point of charging,” says the prosecutor.
Ms. Carmack-Altwies said she was aware of press reports claiming that crew members had practiced shooting with live ammunition hours before the deadly shooting, but that the accusations were “unconfirmed.”
Mamie Mitchell, the script supervisor who called 911 after the shooting, has hired Gloria Allred as her lawyer, according to a statement from Ms. Allred. The statement said they would be conducting their own investigation into the incident “because there are many unanswered questions.”
Ms. Carmack-Altwies, who is expected to speak with reporters on Wednesday morning at a news conference along with Sheriff Adan Mendoza, of Santa Fe County, said that this incident figured among the most challenging cases in Santa Fe County in recent memory.
“We have complex cases all the time,” she said. “But this kind of complex case, with these kinds of prominent people, no.”
