In exclusive pictures on Dailymail.com, the director was seen in a car in Palo Alto, California looking distraught.

He was released from Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe Friday.

On the same day of his sighting, the Santa Fe District Attorney revealed that there is a possibility of criminal charges in the accidental shooting since the firearm was ‘legit’ and an ‘antique-era appropriate gun’ and not a prop.

Halyna died on Thursday after Alec, who was the lead in the movie Rust, shot her during rehearsals on accident.

He was handed a prop gun and told it was ‘unloaded’, according to an affidavit from statements from Souza and camera operator Reid Russell. 

Souza told investigators with Santa Fe County Sheriff’s office that he heard ‘what sounded like a whip and then a loud pop.’

He noticed Hutchins grabbing her midsection as she stumbled backward.

She ‘was assisted to the ground’ by other crew members and Reid Russell, a camera operator, recalled Hutchins saying she could not feel her legs. 

An insider with knowledge of the set told TMZ on Saturday that several crew members on the set had taken several prop guns out the morning of the incident to go ‘plinking’ – a hobby in which people shoot at beer cans with live ammunition to pass the time.

The individual, who spoke on condition of anonymity, added that the round of unsanctioned target practice occurred last Thursday, just hours before Baldwin discharged one of the weapons and shot both Hutchins and Souza.
