Few Seconds after being shot by Alec Baldwin, cinematographer Halnya Hutchins declared a boom operator on the “Rust” movie set,

“That was no good. That was no good at all.” Few hours later, she was reported dead.

This was the evocative final words of the 42-year-old mother, who had been working as the director of photography on Baldwin’s forthcoming Western flick, were made available by the Los Angeles Times based on interviews with 14 crew members, emails and text messages.

Moments earlier, Baldwin had been getting ready for a shootout scene inside a church by making sure the camera crew got its angles right for the cross draw with the .45-caliber Colt revolver, the newspaper stated.

“So, I guess I’m gonna take this out, pull it and go, ‘Bang!’”

he said as he grasp tightly the holstered handgun, which was assumed to be loaded with dummy rounds, as declared by the report.

Alternatively, a live bullet flew out the barrel of the firearm, which the actor had been told was a “cold gun,” pointing to a production terminology that means the weapon doesn’t contain live rounds and is safe for rehearsal, the LA Times further said.

The gruesomely wounded Hutchins tripped backward and fell into the arms of the chief electrician on set as blood poured out of her chest. in the meantime, director Joel Souza, who was as reported struck by the same round, also dropped to the ground.

“What the f— was that? That burns!” Souza yelled, the paper reported.

Baldwin dropped the gun down on a pew and said repeatedly,

“What the f— just happened?”
