A camera operator who was working on the set of the Alec Baldwin movie “Rust” has now spoken about the actor’s handling of prop weapons in the aftermath of the accidental shooting that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead and director Joel Souza wounded.

In an affidavit to detectives the cameraman, Reid Russell, said that Baldwin was very careful with pop weapons before the shooting, Fox News reported.

According to the warrant affidavit, which was obtained by Fox News, Russell actually commended the 63-year-old actor for his conduct during a prior scene that involved discharging a firearm. He noted that the actor observed all the safety protocols and even did an extra check-in with the crew to make sure no one was near him. Specifically, he made sure a child who was on set that day wasn’t anywhere near him when discharging the weapon.
