Rust shooting: Who’s to blame? 

Though only a few details have been released about the shooting death on the film set Rust, the media and film fans around the world appear to be looking for someone to blame for the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

US actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun whilst practising a scene on set.  

Investigators said the gun used was a “prop firearm,” raising questions over what precautions were in place and how the weapon was loaded. “Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement. 

Some are blaming the film’s armourer who has been described as ‘inexperienced’ and reports have emerged she had been criticised over safety on her previous film. 

There are reports that the film’s crew were playing with the gun and using it for live target practise, others have pointed the finger towards the assistant director and many more are having a conversation about the film industry as a whole and what precautions need to be taken going forward.
