The lead bullet that was discharged from a gun by Alec Baldwin on the set of “Rust” last week during the deadly incident in New Mexico was recovered from the director’s shoulder, Santa Fe Sheriff Adan Mendoza said in a press conference on Wednesday.
“The actual lead projectile that was fired has been recovered from the shoulder of Mr. [Joel] Souza,” Mendoza said, adding that it was recovered by medical personnel while the “Rust” director was being treated for his wound.
Baldwin was rehearsing a scene for “Rust” when he fired the gun, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring Souza.
Mendoza said one bullet struck both Hutchins and Souza.
