Assistant Director Who Handed Baldwin Gun Had Been Fired for Gun Mishap in Past

Assistant director Dave Halls, who reportedly called out “cold gun” before handing the pistol to Baldwin, was fired from the set of the movie “Freedom’s Path” in 2019 after a gun unexpectedly discharged, causing a minor injury to a crew member. A veteran prop master says he turned down a job on the set of “Rust,” where a fatal shooting took place last week, over safety concerns. There are also reports that the prop gun that killed Hutchins may have been used for target practice that morning.
