Alec Baldwin accidentally shot and KILLED woman cinematographer, 42, with a gun 'loaded with blanks' and wounded film director on set of his new Western in New Mexico

Alec Baldwin is seen on the set of Rust with fake blood earlier Thursday, hours before he shot and killed the film's cinematographer. He shared this photo on Instagram with the caption "Back to in person at the office. Blimey…it’s exhausting." Filming was halted following the fatal incident at the Bonanza Creek Ranch movie set in Santa Fe

Halyna Hutchins, 42, died shortly after being shot by Baldwin around 1.50pm Thursday at Bonanza Creek Ranch, near the city of Santa Fe in New Mexico. Joel Souza, 48, the film's director, was also hurt and spent several hours in hospital, but was released later the same evening.

Police have disclosed few details about the shooting, saying only that a 'projectile' was fired by a 'prop gun' and they are investigating. A spokesman for the movie's production company later said that accident involved 'the misfire of a prop gun loaded with blanks'.

A witness told Hollywood gossip site Showbiz 411 that Baldwin immediately began asking why he was handed a 'hot gun' - which typically means a gun loaded with real ammunition - after the shooting. 

Though fatal accidents with blank ammunition are extremely rare, they do happen. 

Brandon Lee, the 28-year-old son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, was shot and killed on the set of 1993 movie The Crow. The film crew in that accident thought the gun was loaded with dummy bullets and blanks, but an autopsy revealed Lee had a .44 caliber bullet lodged in his spine. 

Rhys Muldoon, an Australian actor who has worked extensively in film and TV, also suggested that a blank misfiring close to the camera could have caused Thursday's accident - telling the BBC that material from the blank round could have struck Hutchins before causing part of the camera to hit Souza.

Mike Tristan, 60, a Hollywood armorer with 30 years' experience who spoke to the Dailymail.com, said ultimate responsibility for gun safety on movie set rests with the armorer.

The 68 year-old actor was also snapped doubled-over in a parking lot, with his hands on his knees and his face seemingly crumpled with distress 

The daughter of a soldier, Hutchins grew up on a Soviet military base in the Arctic Circle before going to college in Ukrainian capital Kiev. She later moved first to the U.K. to work on documentary filmmaking

A deadly shooting took place on the movie set of ‘Rust’ after the prop gun Alec Baldwin used misfired and shot two people, fatally injuring a cinematographer and injuring the film’s director on Thursday.

The accident took place in Santa Fe, New Mexico when Baldwin was filming a scene in the film which required someone to fire the prop gun. Thought to be loaded with blanks, the gun’s bullets struck director Joel Souza and cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Authorities said in a statement that Hutchins died from her injuries and Souza was airlifted to a nearby hospital.

I agree the prop master is responsible. Why would you have live ammunition on a movie anyway. Also why was point toward the cinematographer?

That was not no damn blanks, those were live ammunition, someone wanted somebody dead or set up somebody, that murder will not be hard to solve, go back from the person in position of those weapons and work your way up, you should find who loaded those live rounds of who forgot to empty the weapon

The Satanist who run Hollyweird must have set him up, just like they did the son of Bruce Lee, Alec B hated Trump, you Black idiots loved that fat tub of lard.
