Los Angeles, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 26th Oct, 2021 ) :The assistant director who handed Alec Baldwin the loaded weapon that killed a cinematographer had been sacked from a previous production for gun safety violations, the company said Monday.
Hutchins was killed on the set of low-budget Western "Rust" on Thursday after Baldwin fired a weapon that assistant director Dave Halls had told him was safe.
"Dave Halls was fired from the set of 'Freedom's Path' in 2019 after a crew member incurred a minor and temporary injury when a gun was unexpectedly discharged," a producer for the as-yet-unreleased movie told AFP.
"Halls was removed from set immediately after the prop gun discharged. Production did not resume filming until Dave was off-site. An incident report was taken and filed at that time."
