The shooting is currently under criminal investigation.
Below you can read the Santa Fe Sheriff’s department statement:
The sheriff’s office confirms that two individuals were shot on the set of Rust. Halyna Hutchins, 42, director of photography, and Joel Souza, 48, director, were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin, 68, producer, and actor.
Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he is undergoing treatment for his injuries.
According to reports, Baldwin ‘was given a prop gun with LIVE round and not blanks’ when he shot and killed the crew member.
Baldwin got a prop gun with a LIVE round and not blanks when he killed the crew member.
It was one bullet that discharged from the prop gun on the Santa Fe movie “Rust” and killed the director of photography and wounded the movie’s director.
An eyewitness on set tells this column that the bullet went straight through the body of DP Halyna Hutchins and into the clavicle of the film’s director Joel Souza.
Very quickly the set was locked down. Ambulance and helicopters arrived. Hutchins and Souza were sent straight to the hospital. Hutchins died en route in a helicopter.
On the ground, Baldwin was in shock but composed. He kept asking why he was handed a “hot gun.” Our eyewitness said Baldwin kept saying “In all my years, I’ve never been handed a hot gun.”
“A hot gun” means a gun with real ammunition.
Baldwin, not knowing the fate of the victims, was taken immediately to the hospital. “He had no idea how badly they were hurt or Halyna was dead.”
Moreover, in 2017, Alec Baldwin assaulted the SoCal police officer who, by mistake, killed a suspect in a parking lot of a convenience store.
“I wonder how it must feel to kill someone wrongfully,” Baldwin tweeted.
