The district attorney and sheriff in Santa Fe, New Mexico, will hold a news conference Wednesday to discuss the investigation into the fatal shooting on the set of the movie “Rust.” On Thursday, a prop gun fired during rehearsal by Alec Baldwin, star and producer of the period Western, killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, and injured director Joel Souza, 48. No criminal charges have been filed and production remains on hold. Not long into filming, “Rust” was facing crew complaints about working conditions, and one camera crew eventually walked out. Also, assistant director Dave Halls, who had declared the gun safe before Baldwin took possession, had faced safety complaints in previous productions, the Associated Press reported.
