Alec Baldwin Fires Prop Gun Killing a Woman on Film Set

US actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on a film set that killed a cinematographer and wounded the director on a film set in New Mexico. The incident happened on the set of ‘Rust’ in the southwest US state, where Baldwin plays the lead role in a 19th century western.

‘’Halyna Hutchins and Joel Souza were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin,’’ the sheriff in Santa Fe said in a statement.

They have not filed any charges over the incident, which is currently under investigation, with witness interviews going on. A source told The Hollywood Reporter the ‘accident’ involved the misfire of a prop gun with blanks.

A police spokesperson last reported about the director saying he is in a critical condition. Movie sets usually have stringent rules over the use of prop weapons, but accidents have happened time and again.

Baldwin co-produces the film and stars as Harland Rust, an outlaw whose grandson is convicted for murder. He goes on the run with his grandson who has been sentenced to hang for his crime.

Alec Baldwin has starred in a number of blockbusters including ‘The Hunt for Red October’. He also featured in two iterations of the ‘Mission: Impossible’ franchise. He has also voiced animated characters in hits like ‘Boss Baby’.
