‘Rust’ armorer attorneys blame producers for ‘unsafe’ set

Attorneys for Hannah Gutierrez Reed, who was in charge of weapons on the movie set where Alec Baldwin fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, say she doesn’t know where the live rounds found there came from, and blamed producers for unsafe working conditions.

Gutierrez Reed was the armorer on the set of “Rust.” The 24-year-old Gutierrez Reed, who had worked on one previous feature film, hasn’t yet spoken publicly about the accident.

During a news conference Wednesday, Santa Fe County Sheriff Adan Mendoza said there was “some complacency” in how weapons were handled on the set of “Rust.”

Investigators found 500 rounds of ammunition, including a mix of blanks, dummy rounds and what appeared to be live rounds.
