US: Alec Baldwin fatally shot a movie crew member with a “prop firearm” during a film shoot in New Mexico, authorities said Thursday.

The shooting also injured the film’s director, a county sheriff’s office spokesman said, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican.

Baldwin was filming a scene for the movie “Rust” when the prop gun went off, said authorities.

“There was an accident today on the New Mexico set of ‘Rust’ involving the misfire of a prop gun with blanks,” a spokesperson for Baldwin told People. No charges have yet been filed as police investigate. Baldwin, 63, was seen in tears, the New Mexican reported.

Halyna Hutchins, the 42-year-old director of photography for the movie, died at University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, said the sheriff’s department. The film’s director, Joel Souza, was hospitalized in Santa Fe.

Hutchins was named by American Cinematographer one of the industry’s “Rising Stars of Cinematography 2019.”

According to her website, she was born in Ukraine and “grew up on a Soviet military base in the Arctic Circle surrounded by reindeer and nuclear submarines.”

She had a graduate degree in International Journalism from Kyiv National University in Ukraine and previously worked as an investigative journalist with British documentary productions in Europe.
