Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed said she is not ready to speak about the fatal shooting that took place on set last month.
"It’s only been two weeks, and I’m not ready to speak on it yet," the 24-year-old told Fox News Digital. "That’ll come," she added.
"At this point in time, I’m just referring and directing everyone to my lawyers," Gutierrez-Reed said.
An attorney representing the armorer told the publication that their client "will first be cooperating with law enforcement on their investigation." Her father Thell Reed — who is also a Hollywood armorer — declined to speak to Fox, but said he "wasn’t there" and did not have any more to add.
As previously reported by OK!, Halyna Hutchins, the Director of Photography, was killed when Alec Baldwin discharged a firearm on set on October 21. Director Joel Souza was injured during the incident.
The actor was reportedly handed the weapon by assistant director Dave Halls and was told it was a "cold gun."

Gutierrez-Reed previously claimed — according to a search warrant obtained by OK! — that she checked the dummy ammunition and ensured they were not "hot" rounds prior to the incident.
She told authorities that the gun was left in a safe in a "prop truck" during the crew's lunch break. She said the gun was safe as she checked it and it couldn't have been messed with as it was locked up. However, she noted that several other people had access to the safe.
Her attorneys said on Today that she put six rounds into the gun thinking they were all dummies and had not realized a live round was in the mix. She gave the gun to Halls who then passed it on to Baldwin.
In a statement released last week, Gutierrez-Reed's legal team said she is "devastated and completely beside herself over the events that transpired." "Hannah would like to extend her deepest and most sincere condolences to the family and friends of Halyna," the statement read.
