Posting on Instagram, Baldwin shared a short statement, which reads: ‘Every film/TV set that uses guns, fake or otherwise, should have a police officer on set, hired by the production, to specifically monitor weapons safety.’

The Hollywood actor, 63, accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins while filming for the Western film Rust in New Mexico last month.

A police investigation is now underway into the shooting, which also left Rust director Joel Souza injured.

Following the shooting, Santa Fe county sheriff said there had been ‘some complacency’ in how weapons were handled.

But last week, Baldwin, who also served as a producer for the film, shared a post from a crew member of Rust dismissing concerns about safety on the set of the film.

Authorities in Santa Fe are probing how a suspected live round came to be in the firearm, which had been declared safe by an assistant director, according to court documents.

The gun was supplied by the armorer, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, and checked by the assistant director David Halls, who told Baldwin it was a ‘cold gun,’ meaning it had blanks, when he pointed it at Hutchins, 42, and fired while rehearsing a scene.

The set has been shut down since that fatal day on October 21, as authorities probe the scene of the incident.
