Alec Baldwin and his family are reacting after the 63-year-old actor discharged a prop gun on the set of the movie “Rust” killing a cinematographer and injuring the director.

“There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” Baldwin said in a series of tweets Friday.

Hutchins, 42, was airlifted in a helicopter after the incident to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel, according to the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office. The director, 48-year-old Joel Souza, was transported via ambulance to Christus St. Vincent’s hospital and is receiving emergency treatment for his injuries.

His family also took to social media to share condolences in what they call a “tragic accident.” 

“Asking for your prayers tonight friends,” Baldwin’s younger brother Stephen Baldwin posted on Instagram Friday morning. “Not much can be said other than please pray for all involved in the wake of this tragic accident.”

“According to investigators it appears that the scene being filmed involved the use of a prop firearm when it was discharged,” a release from the sheriff’s office said. “Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged.” 

A spokesperson for Baldwin told The Associated Press said there was an accident on the set involving the misfire of a prop gun with blanks.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reported Baldwin was seen Thursday outside the sheriff’s office in tears. USA TODAY’s attempts to get comment from him have been unsuccessful.

Deputies responded to a 911 call Thursday afternoon that someone had been shot on the Bonanza Creek Ranch set of “Rust,” according to the sheriff’s office.

The star, in the role of Luther Billis, sings “Honey Bun” with ensemble members during a gala benefit concert performance of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “South Pacific” at New York’s Carnegie Hall on June 9, 2005. Baldwin’s “30 Rock” performances led to two Emmy wins and another five nominations.
