Actor Alec Baldwin
Actor Alec Baldwin was the one who fired the shot that killed a 42-year-old cinematographer, identified as Halyna Hutchins, the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office told KTLA’s sister station, KRQE.
A Baldwin spokesperson said there was an accident on set that involved the misfire of a spotlight support pistol.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reported that Baldwin was seen outside the sheriff’s office crying Thursday, but attempts to obtain comment from him were unsuccessful.
“According to investigators, it appears that the scene being filmed involved the use of a backup firearm when it was fired,” Sheriff’s spokesman Juan Ríos told the Albuquerque Journal. “Detectives are investigating how and what type of shell was discharged.”
The deputies responded around 2 p.m. filming the movie at Bonanza Creek Ranch after they received 911 calls from a person who was shot on set, Rios said.
Filming for “Rust” was scheduled to continue through early November, according to a press release from the New Mexico Film Office.
