Police investigating Rust film set shooting seek material from Alec Baldwin’s phone.

New Mexico authorities on Thursday said they were working with police in New York state to obtain material from actor Alec Baldwin’s phone relating to an investigation into the fatal shooting of a cinematographer on the set of Western movie Rust.

The actor (63) accidentally shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins when a prop gun he was holding went off during filming.

The sheriff’s office in Santa Fe County and the New Mexico first judicial district attorney’s office said they were working with the Suffolk County, New York sheriff’s department and Mr Baldwin’s lawyers to get any materials on the phone pertaining to their investigation.

The statement came nearly three weeks after the Santa Fe sheriff’s office got a search warrant to seize Mr Baldwin’s Apple iPhone to examine text messages, email correspondence, social network communications, browser activity and other information stored on the device, according to court documents.

A spokesman for the Suffolk County sheriff’s department and a lawyer for Mr Baldwin did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Mr Baldwin has a home in the area of Amagansett, Suffolk County, towards the eastern tip of Long Island, New York.

The New Mexico prosecutor overseeing the investigation last month said some people who handled guns on the film set may end up facing criminal charges stemming from Ms Hutchins’s death in October. – Reuters
