After the shooting at Rust that resulted in the death of Alec Baldwin, Daniel Baldwin has come to his defense.

Alec, 63 year old, shot and killed Halyna Hutchins (42-year-old cinematographer) and inflicted injury on Joel Souza, 48, after the incident “prop”He was using live rounds in the gun he was using.

Alec claims he believed he was being handed a “cold gun,”This means that the weapon was not loaded.

His brother Daniel, speaking on Instagram Live, said Alec should not take responsibility for the horrible accident.

He said that his brother shouldn’t receive any criticism as he was informed by the film’s assistant director Dave Halls that the revolver he was given had been called a “cold gun”.

Daniel said: “Remember: The actor’s an idiot. They’re there to do the acting. A number of protocols that have been made known to the public and known in this case exonerate Alec of any responsibility at all.

“What I’m telling you is this, he (Halls) made that announcement to the set. In order to make that announcement, you should have been witnessing an empty weapon handed to you or gone over, or dry-fired the weapon. I don’t know what they did.”

He continued: “That announcement alone exonerates him (Alec) of wrongdoing. There was two layers of protection before Alec that both of them screwed the pooch.”

The Santa Fe Sheriff’s office continues to investigate the incident, but a complaint was filed by head electrician on Rust Serge Svetnoy.

He spoke out in LA Superior Court concerning the general negligence he had against the set, which included the financiers Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed and Dave Halls, as well property master Sarah Zachry and Seth Kenny (armored mentor) among others.

His complaint was: “This incident was caused by the negligent acts and omission of Defendants, and each of them, as well as their agents, principals, and employers.

“Simply put, there was absolutely no reason for a bullet to be in the.45 Colt revolver.”

Lawyers for armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed said earlier this month they believe the whole incident was caused by “Sabotage by a disgruntled member of the crew

Jason Bowles, the 24-year-old’s lawyer, stated that: “I believe that somebody who would do that, would want to sabotage the set, would want to prove a point, want to say they’re disgruntled, they’re unhappy.

“We know that some people had already left the set on the previous day. The reason they are unhappy? They are working 12-14 hour days and are not allowed to stay in hotels. So they drove an hour back and forth to Albuquerque. And they’re miserable.”
