Alec Baldwin Slammed With Lawsuit in Connection With the Fatal Shooting of Cinematographer

Alec Baldwin and a few others have been slammed with a lawsuit in connection with the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his movie Rust.

Per DeadlineRust gaffer Serge Svetnoy slammed the actor, the film’s producers, armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed, and first assistant director David Halls over the shooting, seeking unspecified damages.

“This incident was caused by the negligent acts and omission of Defendants, and each of them, as well as their agents, principals, and employers,” reads the complaint of general negligence. “Simply put, there was no reason for a live bullet to be placed in that .45 Colt revolver to be present anywhere on the Rust set, and the presence of a bullet in a revolver posed a lethal threat to everyone in its vicinity.”

The complaint accuses the parties named in the suit of violating “relevant and prevailing industry standards,” and accuses the defendants of failing “to act with reasonable care.”

This comes after the Oct. 21 incident, when Baldwin discharge a prop gun in the direction of Hutchins and the film’s director, Joel Souza. Hutchins was killed, while Souza was treated for his injuries at a nearby hospital. According to the Santa Fe police department, Baldwin was allegedly not made aware the gun contained any live rounds.
