The entrance to a movie set in which police say actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun and killed a cameraman can be seen outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico on Friday, October 22, 2021.
According to police, a gunsmith was interviewed as a witness after a gun was fired on the set of the film "Rust".
The armorer has not been identified.
IATSE Local 44, a prop master union, said none of its members were there.

"Please note that witnesses who were on set were interviewed, including the armorer," a sheriff's bureau spokesman told Insider. "We're not going to publish your name at this point."
The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local 44, a property management union, said in an email Indie Wire saw that none of its members were on the movie's call slip.
Hours before the shooting, half a dozen cameramen went from the set at Bonanza Creek to protest the working conditions in the low-budget film, people familiar with the matter told the Los Angeles Times.
A source told the LA Times that a number of non-union crew members replaced those who left.
An armourer is usually on the set to oversee all of the weapons used in a movie and to ensure that they are used in a safe manner.
