The Santa Fe County Sheriff said Wednesday that other live rounds may have been on the set of “Rust” last week, in addition to the one that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza.
Sheriff Adan Mendoza said that investigators recovered 500 rounds of ammunition, which included a mix of blanks, dummy rounds and, possibly, live rounds. The sheriff said that investigators are continuing to interview witnesses in an effort to determine how live rounds made it onto the set.
“We’re going to determine how those got there, why they were there, because they shouldn’t have been there,” Mendoza said.
