Rust armorerGutierrez gets 18 months

As armorer of the Western film Rust, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed was in charge of weapons used on set and on location. She was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter after loading a prop gun that killed the movie's cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins. Now Gutierrez-Reed has been sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Before issuing the sentence, Santa Fe judge Mary Sommer said she hadn't expressed accountability for the accidental death. "In her own words, she said she didn't need to be shaking dummies all the time."

During a scene rehearsal in 2021, the film's main actor, Alec Baldwin, pointed what was supposed to be an unloaded gun toward the camera. It fired off, killing cinematographer Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza. Since then, there have been questions over who is responsible for loading the gun with live ammunition.
