Assistant director didn’t check gun that fatally shot cinematographer on set of Rust



Rust’s assistant director who haded Alec Baldwin the gun that fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins has admitted that he did not check all the rounds loaded in the weapon before handing the gun over

A detective interviewed the assistant director, who said he could only remember seeing 3 rounds, he advised he should have checked all of them but didn’t and couldn’t recall if the armorer had spun the drum.

The local sheriff who is leading the investigation into the fatal shooting of Halayna Hutchins on the movie set of Rust confirmed actor Alec Baldwin was handed a loaded gun.

Authorities have now uncovered over 600 new pieces of evidence related to the incident… including three firearms and 500 rounds of ammunition.

There have been no arrests made at this stage, but the sheriff says the investigation is still very much in its early stages.

Over the course of the next few days and weeks, it’s expected that many more interviews will be conducted.

Meanwhile, authorities have also confirmed that Alec Baldwin has been questioned on numerous occasions and is cooperating.

There were one thousand people on set when the shooting occurred and each individual will be questioned over the course of the investigation.

Meanwhile, during the press conference, the Sheriff said “the facts are clear – a weapon was handed to Mr Baldwin, the weapon is functional and fired a live round killing Ms Hutchins and injuring Mr Souza.”

Prince Harry involved in ‘near catastrophic’ car chase



Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death

Prince Harry, his wife Meghan and her mother were involved in a “near catastrophic car chase” involving paparazzi photographers in New York.

The incident took place after they left the Ms. Foundation for Women, where Meghan was honoured for her work.

“This relentless pursuit, lasting over two hours, resulted in multiple near collisions involving other drivers on the road, pedestrians and two NYPD (New York Police Department) officers,” said Prince Harry’s spokesperson.

The chase involved paparazzi driving on the sidewalk, running red lights and driving while taking pictures.

“I thought that was a bit reckless and irresponsible,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said.

Harry has long spoken out about his anger over press intrusion, which he blames for his mother’s death.

Princess Diana was killed when her limousine crashed as it sped away from chasing paparazzi in Paris in 1997.

Harry and Meghan stepped down from their royal duties in 2020, partly over what they described as intense media harassment.

Harry is currently involved in numerous court cases in London where he has accused papers of using unlawful methods to target him and his family.
