According to new reports, Alec Baldwin was practicing how he should draw the prop gun on the set of the movie "Rust" moments before she shot and killed a crew member and injured another.
Cameraman Reid Russel told the authorities what happened on the day of the shooting.
"[Russell] said while preparing, there was a shadow coming from the outside light and they had to move the camera at a different angle from Alec," the warrant says. "He said Alec was trying to explain how he was going to draw out the firearm and where his arm would be at when the firearm was pulled from the holster," according to the warrant. [Russell] was not sure why the firearm was discharged and just remembered the loud bang from the firearm," the document continues.
Baldwin was reportedly practicing the gun-retrieval method from a pew of the fake church at Bonanza Creek Ranch as Halya Hutchins and Joel director Souza stood behind it.
