Alec Baldwin Spotted For First Time Since Being Slammed With Latest Lawsuit Over 'Rust' Shooting That Killed Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins

Alec Baldwin was seen for the first time since being sued by the script supervisor Mamie Mitchell for firing a gun on the set of Rust and taking the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

In the lawsuit, Mitchell accuses the actor of playing "Russian Roulette" when pulling the firearm's trigger.

The 63-year-old Saturday Night Live cast member was pictured in a somber mood while getting into his SUV on Thursday outside of his apartment in Manhattan. Still carrying out father duties, Baldwin dropped his kids off at their school in Brooklyn.

The actor looked devastated and full of sadness while he continues to be slammed over the death of his co-worker.

In the snaps, Baldwin was wearing an all-black ensemble, including a dark-colored t-shirt. He was also sporting a dark-blue mask across his face as he got into the passenger seat of his black Cadillac outside his Greenwich Village residence.

This comes after Mitchell sued the actor and 21 other defendants associated with the film for their actions that she claims resulted in the death of Halyna. She also alleges the incident robbed "the joy" from her life and left her "frightened of the future."

"I will never forget what happened on the set of Rust that day," Mitchell said during a press conference on Tuesday. "I relive the shooting and the sound of the explosion from the gun over and over again."

The industry veteran alleges she was standing less than four feet away from Halyna during the fatal shooting.

Mitchell's attorney Gloria Allred accused the embattled actor of purposefully firing the gun without inspecting it or having the presence of a gun handler to guide him.

"Alec Baldwin intentionally, without just cause or excuse, cocked and fired the loaded gun even though the upcoming scene to be filmed did not call for the cocking and firing of the firearm," Allred claimed. "Mr. Baldwin chose to play Russian Roulette with a loaded gun without checking it and without having the armorer do so."

The high-profile lawyer added, "Mr. Baldwin cannot hide behind the Assistant Director to attempt to excuse the facts that he did not check the gun himself." Allred also stated that her client had cooperated with the authorities to provide "helpful" information for the ongoing investigation.

This isn't the only lawsuit Baldwin had been slammed with. Rust's head of lighting Serge Svetnoy also sued the star, claiming the actor's alleged negligence during the incident caused him "severe emotional distress."

As previously reported, the tragedy occurred in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where they were filming Baldwin's upcoming movie. He was holding the weapon when it accidentally went off and shot Halyna, as well as the film's director Joel Souza.

Halyna was pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital. Souza was left injured and released the following day.
