New Mexico allows funds for prosecutions in ‘Rust’ shooting


SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico has granted funds to pay for possible prosecutions connected to last year’s fatal film-set shooting of a cinematographer by actor Alec Baldwin. The Santa Fe New Mexican reported Thursday that the state Board of Finance has greenlit more than $317,000 to cover the cost of investigating potential charges in the “Rust” shooting. District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies made an emergency request for the funds. As many as four people could face charges, according to a copy of the request obtained by the newspaper. But Carmack-Altwies did not say anyone definitely would. Baldwin was pointing a gun at cinematographer Halyna Hutchins when it went off, killing her.
