All charges dropped against Alec Baldwin in ‘Rust’ shooting case

All criminal charges against actor Alec Baldwin relating to the Rust shooting case will be dropped, according to a new report by Deadline.

On October 21, 2021, a loaded handgun held by Baldwin discharged on the New Mexico film set, killing 42-year-old cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.

After an extensive investigation into the incident, Baldwin and armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed were each charged with two counts of manslaughter in January.
