Search warrant issued for Alec Baldwin's phone over fatal 'Rust' shooting

Police in Santa Fe, New Mexico, have gotten a search warrant for Alec Baldwin’s cellphone to probe the death of a cinematographer he fatally shot on the set of the movie “Rust.”

The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s office believes there are key conversations on Baldwin’s phone related to what led to the prop gun death of Halyna Hutchins in October.

Investigators previously asked the 63-year-old actor for his phone but he told them they would need to get a warrant, according to the document, which was obtained by The Post.

Baldwin fired a prop gun while rehearsing a scene of the western film, killing Hutchins and wounding the film’s director.

Earlier this month, Baldwin told  ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos  he “didn’t pull the trigger.”
