‘It will come’: Rust armourer promises to talk about Alec Baldwin shooting

The young armourer on the set of Rust, where cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was accidentally shot and killed by actor Alec Baldwin, has promised she will talk about what happened — but not just yet.

Hannah Gutierrez Reed, who was in charge of weapons on the movie set, told Fox News she was not ready to speak about the horror shooting, however promised she would talk in due course.

“It’s only been two weeks, and I’m not ready to speak on it yet,” Gutierrez Reed told Fox News on Wednesday.

“That’ll come,” she added. “At this point in time, I’m just referring and directing everyone to my lawyers.”

A lawyer for the 24-year-old US woman told also told the publication: “She will first be cooperating with law enforcement on their investigation.”

Hutchins was fatally shot on the New Mexico movie set on October 21 after a gun was discharged by Baldwin, who was reportedly told the weapon was unloaded.

Gutierrez Reed was working on her second film as lead armourer and was one of only three people who handled the gun before the fatal shooting.

In a statement last week, the armourer blamed poor conditions on the set for the fatal accident.

“Safety is Hannah’s number one priority on set,” her attorneys said.

“Ultimately, this set would never have been compromised if live ammo were not introduced. Hannah has no idea where the live rounds came from.”

After the gun was fired, Baldwin reportedly screamed: “What the f–k was that?”

Director Joel Souza, who was looking over Hutchins’ shoulder, was also injured in the shooting.

Local authorities in New Mexico are continuing to investigate the tragic incident.
