Semana Anterior, Gutierrez-Reed said through Bowles in a statement shared with PEOPLE that she did not think live bullets would end up on the Ferrugem definir “in a million years,” and she did not know how they got there.
“Hannah Gutierrez-Reed would like to add a few points to the continuing narrative on the tragic events surrounding the shooting on the Ferrugem definir,” Bowles stated. “Primeiro, Hannah was incredibly safety conscious and took her job very seriously from the moment she started on Oct. 4.”
Ele adicionou, “She did firearms training for the actors as well as Mr. Baldwin, she fought for more training days and she regularly emphasized to never point a firearm at a person. Never in a million years did Hannah think that live rounds could have been in the ‘dummy’ Round box. Who put those in there and why is the central question.”
In the statement shared with PEOPLE, Bowles said Gutierrez-Reed “kept guns locked up, including throughout lunch” on the day Hutchins was shot and killed. “She instructed her department to watch the cart containing the guns when she was pulled away for her other duties or on a lunch break,” Bowles added.
“Hannah did everything in her power to ensure a safe set. She inspected the rounds that she loaded into the firearms that day. She always inspected the rounds. She did again right before handing the firearm to Mr. Halls, by spinning the cylinder and showing him all of the rounds and then handing him the firearm,” Bowles stated. “No one could have anticipated or thought that someone would introduce live rounds into this set.”
Gutierrez-Reed anteriormente quebrou o silêncio dela about the shooting on set, dizendo em um comunicado por meio de seus advogados que “inverdades que foram contadas à mídia,” e que ela era “devastada e completamente fora de si com os eventos que ocorreram.”

Seus advogados alegaram que Gutierrez-Reed tinha “não tenho ideia de onde vieram as rodadas ao vivo” e disse que estava sob pressão no set por ter trabalhado em dois empregos como armeiro e assistente de adereços.
Gutierrez-Reed disse aos deputados that she had checked the rounds inside the firearm Baldwin used the day of the shooting to make sure the gun was loaded with “bobos,” balas não reais, e que ela trancou as armas em um cofre no caminhão a hélice, de acordo com o mandado de busca e apreensão declaração juramentada. Ela também disse que nenhuma munição real foi mantida no Ferrugem definir.
The Santa Fe County Sheriff refutado As afirmações de Gutierrez-Reed sobre balas vivas, dizendo Hoje em outubro. 28 que a declaração do armeiro foi “obviamente” incorreto depois que Hutchins foi morto no set por uma rodada ao vivo.
“Não, obviously it isn’t,” Sheriff Adan Mendoza said. “That was a live round that struck and killed Ms. Hutchins so that’s not an accurate statement as far as I’m concerned.”
Em outubro. 27, Mendoza said during a conferência de imprensa that investigators had discovered “500 cartuchos de munição” no set de filmagem, que incluiu “uma mistura de espaços em branco, rodadas fictícias e o que suspeitamos são rodadas ao vivo.”
