Alec Baldwin fired the prop gun that killed one person and left another seriously injured, the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office has revealed.
The accidental shooting occurred Thursday while Baldwin was filming the upcoming movie “Rust” in Santa Fe, New Mexico, authorities say.
Although the gun fired by the 68-year-old actor was reportedly a prop filled with blanks, director Joe Souza, 48, and director of photography Halyna Hutchins, were seriously injured. Hutchins, 42, died a short time later, while Souza was listed in critical condition as of early Thursday evening, according to the sheriff’s office.
Investigators say they’re working to determine “how and what type of projectile was discharged” from the gun.
