Gorence told Guthrie the revolver was left on a cart unattended from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. the day of the shooting. The ammunition was left in a “prop truck,” he added.
Guns on set normally were locked in a safe, Gorence said.
The prop truck “was completely unattended at all times, giving someone access and opportunity,” he said. “The tray was outside the church for over two hours after [Gutierrez-Reed] had prepped them for what was going to be an afternoon filming session.”
He said there were emails transferred back and forth between Hannah and him where she showed him different styles

Gutierrez Reed’s lawyer Jason Bowles said in a statement Wednesday that “we are convinced this was sabotage and Hannah is being framed. We believe that the scene was tampered with as well before the police arrived.”
