    Default Alec Baldwin shoots/kills woman

    Sheriff's office: Alec Baldwin's 'prop firearm' kills one, injures another
    By Victoria Traxler vtraxler@sfnewmexican.com


    A distraught Alec Baldwin lingers in the parking lot outside the Santa Fe County sheriff's offices on Camino Justicia after being questioned Thursday about a shooting on a local movie set.

    Actor Alec Baldwin discharged a "prop firearm" that killed a cinematographer and injured the director of the movie Rust, being filmed on a set south of Santa Fe, a county sheriff's office spokesman said late Thursday.

    Halyna Hutchins, 42 and the director of photography for the movie, died at University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque. The film's director, Joel Souza, was hospitalized in Santa Fe, Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office spokesman Juan Ríos said.

    A source closed to the investigation said Baldwin, 63, was questioned by investigators late Thursday and was seen by a New Mexican reporter and photographer in tears.

    Investigators are still trying to determine if the incident was an accident, Ríos said. No charges have been filed, and the investigation is open, Ríos wrote in a news release.

    The prop was fired at Bonanza Creek Ranch, where filming was underway, the sheriff's office said in an early evening news release. Baldwin stars in the production.

    Hutchins died from her injuries after she was flown to University of New Mexico Hospital, according to the sheriff's office. Souza was taken to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, where he is receiving emergency care, the sheriff's office said. Attempts to get comment from Baldwin were unsuccessful.

    “We received the devastating news this evening, that one of our members, Halyna Hutchins, the Director of Photography on a production called ‘Rust’ in New Mexico died from injuries sustained on the set,” John Lindley, the president of the International Cinematographers Guild Local 600, and Rebecca Rhine, the executive director, said in a statement, as reported by Variety. “The details are unclear at this moment, but we are working to learn more, and we support a full investigation into this tragic event. This is a terrible loss, and we mourn the passing of a member of our Guild’s family.”

    Deputies were investigating how the accident occurred and "what type of projectile was discharged," the sheriff's office said in an earlier news release.

    Rust Movie Productions did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

    Filming for Rust was set to continue into early November, according to a news release from the New Mexico Film Office. It's described as the story of a 13-year-old boy left to fend for himself and his younger brother following the death of their parents in 1880s Kansas, with New Mexico doubling for Kansas.

    Guns firing blanks have been blamed for deaths in past movie productions. Online Hollywood news site Deadline reported, "Actor Jon-Erik Hexum was killed Oct. 18, 1984, on the set of the TV series Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. And in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died after he was shot in the head by a gun firing blanks on the set of The Crow. Both incidents were determined to have been accidents."

    How does that even happen? I mean...how does a gun with a firing pin, loaded with live ammo, wind up on the set of a movie where people are pretending to get shot.

    This ain't passing the smell test. Did the gun have live rounds? Was it a prop gun or a real gun? How close was the person shot?

    The Brandon Lee accident was pretty messed up.
    I think there is a video somewhere that talks about all the things that went wrong. I will search for it later. \
    Essentually the gun was used with a bullet and no powder for a shot from the front.
    The gun was fired and there was a primer in the prop bullet.
    That lodged the slug in the barrel of the revolver.
    Next scene was a gunfight with a lot of guns and blank bullets. When the revolver was fired with a blank, the slug was in the barrel. that made it a weapon.

    So, how did dumbass Alec end up shooting two people?

    Evidently an NRA gun safety course was not a prerequisite.

    It blows my mind how anti gun Hollywood is but they can’t produce a single movie without (the improper use of) guns and violence.

    I think they shoot blank loads in some movie scenes. I seem to recall an actor killed himself because he didn't realize that blanks can kill if held point-blank...it's basically a short bang stick.

    In Mexico...he'll get off but will be a lot lighter in the bank account...

    Baldwin is considered one of the most volatile actors in television and movies.

    Well, he killed a non-actor and injured a non-actor. Neither were stunt people. So I suspect he was dicking off with it and folks got hurt.

    I don’t know. He just strikes me as the type of guy that would try to be a prankster but in an asshole inappropriate way. Like firing a gun at folks between takes or during lunch.
