Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the armorer overseeing safety on the set of the film “Rust,” where the tragic and fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins by actor Alec Baldwin transpired in 2021, has officially entered a plea of not guilty to the charges of involuntary manslaughter and evidence tampering. The legal proceedings will culminate in a trial set to commence on December 6. Prosecutors lay forth the allegation that Gutierrez-Reed was likely grappling with a hangover on the fateful day of the shooting and had been indulging in both alcohol and marijuana during the evenings while the filming was underway. Furthermore, the prosecution asserts that she undertook the transfer of narcotics to another individual with the apparent intention of obstructing her own apprehension, prosecution, or conviction. This tumultuous case has brought to light that, according to a special prosecutor’s statement released in January, Gutierrez-Reed neglected to properly examine the ammunition she loaded into the firearms before the incident, inadvertently allowing live rounds to infiltrate the scene.
