'There are no words to convey my shock and sadness': Alec Baldwin speaks after fatal incident with prop gun on set

Asia's Tech News Daily

Alec Baldwin has released a statement expressing his horror over a fatal incident on set in which he discharged a prop gun.

On Oct. 21, police named the 63-year-old as the person who fired the prop firearm on the set of Rust at Bonanza Creek Ranch near Santa Fe. Halyna Hutchins, 42, was fatally wounded in the incident and pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital. Director Joel Souza is receiving treatment for his injuries.

“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,” he tweeted on Oct. 22.

“I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

On Oct. 21, the Santa Fe County Sheriff said it was investigating the incident, including what was discharged from the prop gun and how it was fired. No one has been charged in connection with the incident.

Production on Rust has been shut down as the investigation continues.

“The entire cast and crew has been absolutely devastated by today’s tragedy, and we send our deepest condolences to Halyna’s family and loved ones,” Rust Movie Productions LLC, the film’s production company, said in a statement.

“We will be providing counselling services to everyone connected to the film as we work to process this awful event.”

The International Cinematographers Guild, Local 600, said it was cooperating with the investigation.

“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,” president John Lindley and executive director Rebecca Rhine said in a statement.

“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.”

Stephen Baldwin, Alec’s brother, asked fans to keep those affected in their thoughts and prayers.

“Asking for prayers tonight, friends,” he wrote on Instagram early on Oct. 22. “Not much can be said other than please pray for all involved in the wake of this tragic accident. Thank you.”

Bonanza Creek Ranch has been a popular production location for Westerns since the 1950s, and it’s hosted crews that have made classics such as Silverado and James Stewart‘s The Man from Laramie.

According to The New York Times, only blank ammunition is allowed on film sets. Some productions use replica guns or firearms made out of rubber, while films sometimes use real firearms that discharge blanks. There are also safety rules for what is considered appropriate distance for discharging any prop gun on set, an expert told the publication.

This is not the first time someone has died on set in an accident involving a prop gun.

In 1993, actor Brandon Lee – the son of actor and martial arts legend Bruce Lee – was killed on set during filming for the cult classic The Crow. An autopsy revealed the gun had contained a bullet when it was supposed to have had a blank. Actor John-Eric Hexum also died on set in 1984 when he put a prop gun containing blanks to his head and pulled the trigger.

“Our hearts go out to the family of Halyna Hutchins and Joel Souza and all involved in the incident on ‘Rust,'” Brandon’s family tweeted on Oct. 22. “No one should ever be killed by a gun on a film set. Period.”

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. 💔
