The Bonanza Creek Ranch in Santa Fe, N.M., is seen on Oct. 23, 2021. On Wednesday, New Mexico workplace safety regulators issued the maximum possible fine against a film production company for firearms safety failures on the set of "Rust," where a cinematographer was fatally shot.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A sheriff’s department has submitted its investigative findings to prosecutors in the death of a cinematographer shot and killed by Alec Baldwin on a film set in New Mexico in October 2021. Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office spokesman Juan Ríos said Thursday that binders of information were turned over to the Santa Fe-based district attorney’s office without setting forth any recommendations on possible charges. Prosecutors are beginning their review. Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died shortly after being wounded by a gunshot during setup for a scene in the western movie “Rust” at a film set ranch on the outskirts of Santa Fe. Baldwin has said the gun went off accidentally.
