The clip was made during Ackles’ appearance at a fan event for his long-running CW show in Denver between October 15-17. supernatural.
The clip in which Ackles describes a brief training session with War Armorer (the crew member in charge of prop firearms), gained much attention after following casual shooting On Thursday, on the set of the film, which resulted in the death of cinematographer Helena Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza after Baldwin “discharged” a prop gun.
The video has now been removed from the Internet. However, several media reports on the content of the clip were issued by Twitter users and the media prior to the take-down.
In the video, Ackles purportedly says, “I got a call yesterday morning at 6 am to do a big shootout. They asked me to get my gun, they were like, ‘Okay, which gun would you like?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know.’ And the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘a little.’ And she’s like, ‘Okay, okay, you load it like this, that’s how we check it and make sure it’s safe.'”
Ackles said she was told by Armor that she was “going to put some free space” in the gun. He was then instructed to “fire a couple of rounds” on distant ground.
“I walk out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure you pull the hammer backwards and aim at your target,’ I was like, ‘Okay, I get it.'”
There is no evidence that Jensen was part of the scene that involved the fatal shooting. The actor has yet to publicly comment on the video of the accident or his gun training remarks, which could factor into a future legal determination as to whether actors were given proper instruction on the safe use of firearms.
According to several reports, a shocked Baldwin reportedly repeatedly stated after the shooting incident that he had never been given a “hot gun” (a shotgun with a live round) on a set before. Jensen’s representatives have reached the deadline.
A spokesman for the Santa Fe County Sheriff said detectives are still investigating what type of projectile was fired and how.
baldwin spoke via twitter saying on Friday that he is “heartbroken” over the fatal accident.
“There are no words to express my shock and sadness about the tragic accident that took the lives of our wife, mother and deeply admired colleague Helena Hutchins. I am fully cooperating with the police investigation,” Baldwin wrote.
