SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — The assistant director who handed Alec Baldwin the gun that killed a cinematographer last week had been fired from a previous job after a gun went off on a set and wounded a member of the film crew. That’s according to a producer who spoke Monday to The Associated Press. In an email statement to the AP, the producer for the movie “Freedom’s Path” confirmed that Dave Halls was fired from the production. The producer wrote that Halls was removed from the set immediately. His firing from “Freedom’s Path” was first reported by CNN. Halls has not returned messages seeking comment.
