“My heart is broken” -Baldwin after fatal shooting
In the aftermath of a tragic shootout on a film set in New Mexico – where actor Alec Baldwin fired a propeller pistol that killed the film’s cinematographer – Baldwin tweeted Friday “My heart is broken “. The tweet read (quote): “There are no words to express my shock and sadness over the tragic accident that claimed the life of Halyna Hutchins, a deeply admired wife, mother and colleague. I cooperate fully to the police investigation to explain how this tragedy happened. He added: “I am in contact with her husband, offering my support to him and his family.” A few days earlier, Hutchins had posted a video Instagram of herself on horseback. On Thursday afternoon, Hutchins was shot by Baldwin – an actor and co-producer of the movie “RUST” – on the set of a ranch south of Santa Fe. She was transported by helicopter to the University of Mexico hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The director of the film, Joel Souza, was injured and transported by ambulance to a local hospital. He was later released. The department the Santa Fe Sheriff said Thursday evening that no charges had been laid and that the investigation remained “o open and active “. Local media reported that Baldwin was seen distraught and in tears outside the sheriff’s office, and said he had voluntarily made a statement to authorities about the shooting. Andriy Semenyuk, a friend and colleague of Hutchins, said he wanted to focus not on Baldwin, but on the Hutchins remembrance. He described her as a shining star: “I think the word ‘amazing’ isn’t even to begin to describe her personally. Truly generous, truly talented, truly optimistic. There is never a ‘no’ on her part and I think that was that kind of easy going personality and at the same time working with her was like an amazing work ethic. ” The shooting evoked memories of an accident on set in 1993 when actor Brandon Lee, son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died after being injured by a prop gun while filming “The Crow” “. Thursday’s crash reignited debate over whether certain types of propeller guns should be banned.
