Alec Baldwin was shooting a movie, and he fired his prop gun, which killed someone. The victim was the director of the movie. The Sheriff’s office said it happened in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer of this film, was 42 years old when she died. She had to be taken by helicopter to the hospital. The other shooting victim was the director Joel Souza, 48. He was injured and lay hold of to a hospital.🚑
Halyna Hutchins, the person who filmed the movie, died after being taken to the hospital. The Associated Press quoted a spokesperson for Mr. Baldwin, who is 63 years old, as saying that there was a misfortune on the set involving the misfire of a prop gun with blanks.
A representative for Mr. Baldwin couldn’t be reached by CSU World Record for comment. He is in the film as Harland Rust. A shooting happened at the movie set for Bonanza Creek Ranch. The prop gun was fired when Mr. Baldwin, the actor, pulled the trigger. Detectives are trying to figure out what kind of projectile it is and how it got discharged.❗
An acting career is a great way to make money. Mr. Baldwin has been in many movies and TV shows and also acted as President Trump on Saturday Night Live. He’s done commercials for Capital One Financial too!
Ms. Hutchins is originally from Ukraine and grew up on a Soviet military base in the Arctic. She recently posted a video of herself on a horse ride in New Mexico, where she was shooting a western movie. One of the perks of being an actor is that you get to ride horses when it’s your day off.

The International Cinematographers Guild said, “This is a terrible loss. We are sorry for the death of one of our family members.”
Accidental fatal gunshots on Hollywood sets are rare but have occurred before. Brandon Lee, the son of Bruce and Linda Lee, was killed by an accidental gunshot wound on “The Crow” set in 1993.
No one should be killed by a gun on a film set. People say they feel bad for Halyna Hutchins and Joel Souza, and people who were involved in the incident on Rust. His sister said this on Twitter on Friday.
Our hearts go out to the family of Halyna Hutchins and to Joel Souza and all involved in the incident on “Rust”. No one should ever be killed by a gun on a film set. Period. 💔
