In a shocking incident, American actor Alec Baldwin kills the director of photography and injures the director while filming “Rust”.
Actor Alec Baldwin fired a gun while filming “Rust” near Santa Fe, killing the film’s director of filming and wounding the director, according to the county sheriff’s office, police said.
According to the Los Angeles Time, two people were shot Thursday afternoon on the set: cinematographer Helena Hutchins, 42, and film director Joel Sousa, 48, according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.
The sheriff’s office said Helena Hutchins was flown to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where she was pronounced dead, while Souza was in the hospital’s intensive care unit.
No charges have been brought against the American representative, but the sheriff’s office said, “We will continue to question witnesses by investigators, to ensure there was no prior intent to the incident,” according to the newspaper’s statement.
The reason for the shooting
The accident occurred because of a supposedly empty firearm, which is old and out of service, and the county sheriff indicated that “investigators are trying to find out what kind of bullets were fired and how.”

Now law-enforcement officials are investigating what happened on the set on Thursday when, they said, Mr. Baldwin, who was playing an outlaw, fired a gun being used as a prop — killing the film’s cinematographer, wounding its director and raising new questions about firearms safety on film sets.
The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office has shared few details of how the deadly incident unfolded on the set of the film, “Rust,” leaving it unclear what kind of gun was being used, what it was loaded with, and what exactly was happening when it was fired.
“We’re trying to determine right now how and what type of projectile was used in the firearm,” Juan Rios, a spokesman for the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, said on Thursday.
