Santa Fe County Sheriff and Top Attorney hold Press Conference on Latest Alec Baldwin "Rust" Movie

FULL PRESS CONFERENCE @ABQRAW was in Santa Fe, NM - A presser was held by the Santa Fe County Sheriff, Adan Mendoza and the Santa Fe County District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies this morning. Officials gave an update to the gathered worldwide media outlets about the latest details of the case. Alec Baldwin fired what we now know was an actual western style .45 caliber Long Colt revolver loaded with what is believed to be a "live" round at the cinematographer Halyna Hutchins killing her and injuring the movies director Joel Souza who was standing directly behind her. Baldwin believed the gun to be a "cold gun" incapable of injuring anyone. The gun was handed to Baldwin by the assistant director of the movie Dave Halls. A cart with three guns on it was in reach of Baldwin and Halls and it had been prepared by the movies armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed. The movie set of this western movie named "Rust" had been swirling in rumors of unsafe conditions leading up to the incident. The DA stated "If the facts and evidence, and law, support charges, then I will initiate prosecution at that time." When asked if Alec Baldwin would face any charges she said "All options are on the table". FULL PRESS CONFERENCE
