New details of the incident emerged Wednesday at a news conference held by Adan Mendoza, Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, and Mary Carmack-Altois, the attorney general, in a statement from the county police department. Mendoza told reporters that safety measures were lax before the shooting last Thursday that killed cinematographer Halina Hutchins during scenes rehearsals.

The police chief and the prosecutor said that although no criminal charges had been brought, that had not yet been ruled out.

Hana Gutierrez, a member of the team responsible for weapons on the set, told investigators that she checked the pistols there and found no live bullets in them prior to filming, according to the statement.

Dave Hales, the film’s assistant director, told investigators, according to the affidavit, that he “had to check all” of the bullets in the gun before handing it to Baldwin, but he did not do so.
