Criminal charges are not off the table in the recent accidental shooting of a director of photography at the Rust film set.
As recently reported by Legit.ng movie star Alec Baldwin fatally shot at a woman Halyna Hutchins, a cinematographer working on the said film.
As new evidence continues to be gathered by investigators, it is starting to appear as if it was a matter of when, not if, such an incident would happen.
According to New York Post, police revealed on Tuesday, October 26, that criminal charges are yet to be ruled out, even though none have been filed.

Santa Fe Sherrif's Office noted no one had been arrested yet, but the possibility for criminal charges is not being ruled out.
Need for more information
The crew was urged to give more information to help solve the case.
The police noted a lot had been shared on social media and not the authorities, who are desperate for more information regarding the incident.
The cops noted that the case might go on for quite a while, considering the number of people who have to be interviewed and help develop a case that can uphold in court.
According to CNN, the district attorney for Santa Fe County, Mary Carmack-Altwies, said the term "prop gun" was misleading as the weapon used in the incident was a "legit gun".
The investigators want to determine what kind of rounds (bullets) were used and who placed them in the gun used by Alec in the shooting.
Alec Baldwin was practicing for scene when fatal shot was fired
Legit.ng earlier reported that Alec Baldwin was highly cooperative with the law enforcement during the investigation of the shooting that killed Halyna Hutchins on set.
Statements were taken from all those who were present on the scene of the accident and all results seemed to tell a very similar story of the fatal incident.
Reports confirmed that the moment gun fired was not caught on camera because the filming had not begun, the crew and actors were returning from a launch break.
