Authorities investigating the fatal shooting on the set of the Alec Baldwin film Rust have obtained a search warrant for the actor’s phone.

Back in October, cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died and director Joel Souza was injured, when Alec Baldwin was rehearsing drawing a prop gun.

Alec Baldwin, 63, has insisted he “didn’t pull the trigger”.

The warrant was issued by a Sante Fe court in New Mexico – the state where Rust was being filmed.

It says “there may be evidence on the phone” that could be “material and relevant to this investigation”.

Investigators asked to confiscate Alec Baldwin’s iPhone that is “believed to be in his possession”.

They wanted to look at text messages, emails, web browser history and other information stored on the phone.

The search warrant comes two weeks after Alec Baldwin gave his first TV interview about the incident, in which he said he did not pull the trigger, but the gun went off anyway.

“I would never point a gun at anyone and pull a trigger at them. Never,” the actor told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News.

Alec Baldwin said he had been told “it’s highly unlikely that I would be charged with anything criminally”.

He said he is fully co-operating with the police investigation into the shooting.

No criminal charges have been brought against anyone.

A lawsuit against Alec Baldwin alleges that a film script did not require him to fire a gun when he fatally shot Halyna Hutchins.

Lawyers handling the suit described the behavior of Alec Baldwin and the film’s producers as “reckless”, and accused them of failing to follow safety protocols.

Alec Baldwin fatally shot a woman and injured director Joel Souza after firing a prop gun on a New Mexico film set for the 19th Century western Rust.

Halyna Hutchins, 42, was shot while working on the set as director of photography. She was flown to hospital by helicopter but died of her injuries.

Director Joel Souza, 48, was taken from the scene at Bonanza Creek Ranch by ambulance.

Police said they were investigating and that no charges had been filed.

A spokesperson for Alec Baldwin, best known for his role as Jack Donaghy on the NBC sitcom 30 Rock and for his portrayal of Donald Trump on sketch show Saturday Night Live, told AP the incident involved the misfiring of a prop gun with blanks.

In a statement to AFP, a Santa Fe sheriff spokesman said Alec Baldwin had spoken to detectives.

“He came in voluntarily and he left the building after he finished his interviews,” the spokesman said.

Alec Baldwin is a co-producer of the film and plays its namesake, an outlaw whose 13-year-old grandson is convicted of manslaughter.

The eldest of four brothers, all actors, Alec Baldwin has starred in numerous TV and film roles since the 1980s.

Halyna Hutchins was from Ukraine and grew up on a Soviet military base in the Arctic Circle, according to her personal website. She studied journalism in Kyiv, and film in Los Angeles, and was named a “rising star” by the American Cinematographer magazine in 2019.

She was the director of photography for the 2020 action film Archenemy, directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer.

Police said sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Bonanza Creek Ranch, a popular filming location, at around 13:50 local time after receiving an emergency call about a shooting on the set of Rust.


Rust and corrosion on your vehicle will not only look terrible, it can also cause some serious damage. The key is to prevent rust from forming on internal components throughout the engine, as well as on the exterior paint of the car. But how can you go about doing so? Check out the tips below to always maintain your vehicle in tip-top, rust-free condition both inside and out. vw-183309_640

Maintain Your Car with Regular Washes

General, basic maintenance can go a long way in protecting your vehicle from rust and corrosion. You can start by washing your car at least once every couple of weeks, or once a week when it is exposed to salt, such as during the harsh winter months or if you live in a tropical climate.

In addition to cleaning off dirt and debris that could eat away the car’s paint and cause rust, you can further protect the paint by waxing your vehicle regularly. Once every few months should suffice, or you can do it more often, if necessary.

To fix problems on the exterior of your vehicle before they worsen, purchase plasti dip colors from a site like autobodynow.com, which you can then apply to your vehicle and will make it look like new.

Use a Rust-Preventing Spray

If your car is exposed to conditions that could lead to rust easily, you can coat the entire vehicle in a rust-preventing spray, which is easy to find and use. Just make sure that you maintain dry metal surfaces throughout the car so that this spray will work at its best. So, again, when you wash your car, take time to thoroughly dry it off before applying products like wax.

Cover Your Car During Long Periods of Inactivity

If you do not plan on using your car for an extended period of time, it will be susceptible to rust formation if it will be left out in the elements instead of inside a dry and clean garage.

In this case, wash your vehicle and apply a rust-preventing spray and then use a car cover to completely cover and protect the vehicle from the elements, including debris kicked up by passing cars on the road.

Already Have Rust? Use Rust Removal Products

In the unfortunate event that your car already has rust or corrosion, rest assured that there are still steps that you can take to bring it back to a state of looking great. To prevent the rust from getting worse and causing further issues, use one of the many products on the market that are specifically designed to remove rust from cars. These products are typically able to not only remove the rust, but also prevent future rust from forming, giving you double the protection.

Because rust is unsightly and it can do a lot of damage to your car, it is wise to take active steps to prevent its formation in the first place. Thankfully, there are plenty of products to choose from that will prevent rust and help you remove it from your vehicle very easily.
