Director says Alec Baldwin was practicing drawing his gun when his weapon fired

According to a new report from CNN “The shot that killed a woman on a New Mexico film set last week was fired as actor Alec Baldwin was practicing drawing his gun, according to the director who was injured in the shooting, an affidavit for a search warrant shows.”

According to the affidavit Souza told them Baldwin was “sitting in a pew in a church building setting, and he was practicing a cross draw.”

Souza was looking over Hutchins’ shoulder “when he heard what sounded like a whip and then loud pop,” the affidavit continues.

Souza recalled Hutchins “complaining about her stomach and grabbing her midsection” after the shot was fired, the document also says.
