What to know about the new grand jury evidence on Alec Baldwin after the 2021 ‘Rust' shooting

Prosecutors are preparing to present evidence to a grand jury against Alec Baldwin in the fatal 2021 shooting of a cinematographer on the set of a Western movie in New Mexico.

The grand jury declined to consider the issue on Thursday, and it may take several weeks before Baldwin's criminal charges are reopened.

Witnesses may testify without a cross-examination or prompt vetting by defense counsel, and the proceedings are conducted in secret and are not open to the public.

Baldwin, lead actor and co-producer of “Rust,” was pointing a gun at cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during a rehearsal on a movie set outside Santa Fe in October 2021 when the gun went off,

killing her and wounding director Joel Souza. Baldwin has said he pulled back the hammer — but not the trigger — and the gun fired.

When Baldwin's involuntary manslaughter case was first dropped in April, special prosecutors claimed they had knowledge that the gun may have been altered before to the shooting and had malfunctioned. A new investigation of the gun led them to change their minds, and they will now ask a grand jury to consider recharging Baldwin.
