Alec Baldwin spotted shopping in Vermont following deadly ‘Rust’ set shooting

EXCLUSIVE: Alec Baldwin is resting up in Vermont with his family a week after the “Rust” movie shooting involving the actor/producer which left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead and director Joel Souza injured.

The 63-year-old was spotted shopping at a clothing store in a small town in Vermont. He donned a blue mask over his newly clean-shaven face.

Baldwin wore a plaid shirt and dark pants as he carried a brown paper bag while exiting the store. 

It appears Baldwin has been in New England since Monday when he was seen on foot picking up a food order from a local Italian restaurant.

“The answer is, we cannot answer that question yet until we complete a more thorough investigation,” she said. 

Baldwin was handed what he believed to be a “cold gun” by assistant director Dave Halls and pulled the trigger. The assistant director had indicated to the actor that the gun was unloaded, according to a search warrant executed by the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office and obtained by Fox News. Sheriff Mendoza reiterated those events at the top of the press conference.

An inventory report obtained by Fox News on Tuesday revealed that authorities collected three revolvers, a fanny pack with “ammo,” “loose ammo,” nine “spent casing(s)” and 14 swabs of “suspected blood” from the movie set among other items while executing the warrant. Sheriff Mendoza explained that 500 rounds were taken from the scene but he was unclear on how many were live, dummy or prop rounds.

“Obviously I think the industry has had a record recently of being safe. I think there was some complacency on this set, and I think there are some safety issues that need to be addressed by the industry and possibly by the state of New Mexico,” Sheriff Mendoza said.

Both Baldwin and his wife Hilaria have released statements regarding the death of Hutchins. “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” Baldwin said Oct. 22 on Twitter.

“I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna,” the actor concluded.
