Never-seen-before footage has been released of the moments before and after Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed on set.

Police in New Mexico have made public all the files associated with the ongoing criminal investigation into her death, including camera footage from detectives, incident reports, crime scene photos and witness interviews collected during the investigation.

One of the clips shows police and medics racing to the scene, with bodycam footage showing first responders battling to save Ms Hutchins. Another shows Hollywood star Alec Baldwin rehearsing pulling the gun that eventually killed her.

Ms Hutchins died after a prop gun held by Baldwin fired a live round during rehearsals in October 2021.

Police have released footage of an interview conducted with actor Alec Baldwin

The actor was one of the producers of the Western, as well as its star.

With Ms Hutchins behind the camera lining up her last ever scene, the new footage shows Baldwin sitting inside a church, dressed in period Western costume, whipping out the revolver that apparently misfired and left the cinematographer dead and the film’s director Joel Souza injured.

Police bodycam footage then captures the actor being asked about the incident. During their questions, he answers his mobile phone.

Baldwin denies pulling the trigger and says he does not know how live rounds came to be on the set.

There are also moments filmed from another officer’s lapel camera in hospital with Mr Souza.

The director tells police he heard a “loud bang” and adds: “It felt like someone had kicked me in the shoulder – and then I was down on my ass”.

“Then I looked over and saw the cinematographer with blood coming out of her back.”

It shows doctors removing the bullet that travelled through Ms Hutchins and into his shoulder.

At that point, he does not yet know his colleague and friend has been fatally wounded.

Other footage features the film’s armourer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed who was responsible for the safety of guns on set. The 24-year-old had set up the gun and two others, according to an affidavit from the Sante Fe County Sheriff’s Office.

She had previously said she was “devastated and completely beside herself over the events that transpired”.

She is now suing the weapon’s provider, alleging he supplied a mismarked box of ammunition containing live rounds.

The full police records released on Monday include crime scene photos, bodycam footage, staff photos, dashcam film and other evidence that has been collected since the incident.

Santa Fe County Sheriff Adan Mendoza said various components of the investigation “remain outstanding” including FBI firearm and ballistic forensics as well as analysis of Baldwin’s phone data.

Last week a report into the incident on set found management “knew that firearm safety procedures were not being followed“.

New Mexico safety regulators fined the film company a maximum $139,793 (£107,019) after an “avoidable loss of life occurred”.

There could still be criminal charges brought.

Baldwin is fighting a number of lawsuits stemming from the incident, with cases brought by script supervisor Mamie Mitchell and head of lighting Serge Svetnoy, as well as Ms Hutchins’ family.
