Alec Baldwin may still face criminal charges in ‘Rust’ shooting, as cops reveal gun in deadly set accident

SANTA FE, N.M — Authorities on Wednesday refused to rule out whether Alec Baldwin could face criminal charges after he accidentally shot dead his cinematographer and injured the director on the New Mexico set of his “Rust” film last week.

Nearly a week after the shooting, Santa Fe County Sheriff Adan Mendoza acknowledged during a press conference that there was “some complacency” in how weapons were handled on set — and that other live rounds were potentially uncovered amid the investigation.

Criminal charges? I'll believe it when I see it.
