The film’s gunsmith, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, told the detective that she checked to see if the bullets were hot.

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the gunsmith in Rust, told the detective that on the day Alec Baldwin fatally shot the film’s cameraman, she checked the empty cartridges and made sure they weren’t “hot,” according to an affidavit released Wednesday. When the film crew took a lunch break, she told the detective that the ammunition was left on a cart on set.

The mannequins have no gunpowder or primer; they are simply used as replacements for real bullets on the camera.

Ms. Gutierrez-Reed set up a gray bunk cart near the set, from which Dave Halls, the assistant director, took a firearm and handed it to Mr. Baldwin shortly before the shooting, according to court documents.

On the day of filming, the crew rehearsed the scene, then took a break for lunch before returning to the scene. Ms. Gutierrez-Reed told the detective that at the start of lunchtime, the firearm was hidden in a safe on a trolley. At the time, she said the ammunition was stored in a truck as well as on a trolley on set, where, according to affidavits, it was “not secured.”

Ms. Gutierrez-Reed told the investigator that live ammunition was “never stored on set.”

After lunch, film prop Sarah Zakri took a firearm from the safe and handed it to the gunsmith, Ms. Gutierrez-Reed, according to Ms. Gutierrez-Reed’s story to the detective.

“She said that there are only a few people who have access and a combination of keys to the safe,” the affidavit said.

During filming, Ms. Gutierrez-Reed told the detective that she had passed the gun to Mr. Baldwin as well as Mr. Halls on several occasions.

In a podcast published last month, 24-year-old Ms. Gutierrez-Reed, also known as Hannah Reed and Hannah Gutierrez, said she had just finished filming her first film as the main gunsmith in a western called The Old Way. starring Clint. Howard and Nicolas Cage due out next year.

“At first I was very nervous about this and almost did not take on this work, because I was not sure if I was ready, but after completing it, everything went very smoothly,” Ms. Gutierrez-Reed said about this film in the Voices of the West podcast, in which hosts discuss old Western films and TV shows. She is the daughter of Tell Reed, a shooting expert and film industry consultant who has trained famous actors in the use of firearms.

“My dad has taught me a little about weapons since I was 16,” Ms. Gutierrez-Reed said in a podcast, “but I think we’ve really gotten into this subject more in the last couple of years. “

Ms. Gutierrez-Reed did not respond to several requests for comment.
