SANTA FE, N.M. — Criminal charges have not been ruled out in the shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Alec Baldwin’s Western “Rust,” cops said Tuesday.

While no one has been arrested in the fatal mishap, the potential for criminal charges “hasn’t been ruled out” and if crew members who were on-set have information, they need to come forward, Juan Rios, the public information officer for the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Office, told The Post.

“There are a lot of things flying around on the internet and honestly if people have information, they need to bring it to us instead of going to whomever,” Rios said.

“Bring it to us so we can follow up and check into that because if you have valid information, we want it, but the only way we can check it out is if you tell us.”

Rios said detectives are taking a slow and methodical approach to the investigation, which is expected to “be going on for a while” due to the number of witnesses that need to be interviewed.

“We need to be diligent to ensure the integrity of the investigation should there be charges ultimately filed that they are able to uphold those in court,” Rios explained.
