(AP) – It took nearly three months after the fatal shooting on the “Rust” set and a month after a search warrant was issued – but authorities in New Mexico now have Alec Baldwin’s cellphone. It was surrendered to authorities this past Friday. Authorities in Santa Fe have been trying to get the device as part of the investigation into the Oct. 21 on-set shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. A live round from Baldwin’s prop gun hit her during a rehearsal. The warrant for the phone seeks text messages, images, videos, calls or other information related to the movie. Baldwin both stars in and co-produces Rust, which has paused production.  (Photo:  ABC)
