Actor Alec Baldwin accidentally kills a woman on a movie set

Us actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun that killed a cinematographer and wounded the director on a film set in New Mexico US law enforcement said Friday.

The incident took place on a set of ”’Rust” where Baldwin is playing the lead in a 19th century western about an accidental killing.

The Western drama’s director of photography, Halyna Hutchins, and its director, Joel Souza, were struck in the incident, according to the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office.

“The sheriff’s office confirms that two individuals were shot on the set of Rust. Halyna Hutchins, 42, director of photography, and Joel Souza, 48, director, were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin, 68, producer, and actor,” it said.

“Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St Vincent regional medical center where he is undergoing treatment for his injuries.”

“This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident.”

Juan Rios, from the sheriff’s office, said: “Mr. Baldwin came in voluntarily to speak with investigators and after speaking with them he left.”

The Santa Fe New Mexican reported Baldwin was seen on Thursday outside the sheriff’s office in tears, but attempts to get a comment from him were unsuccessful.

“According to investigators, it appears that the scene being filmed involved the use of a prop firearm when it was discharged,” Rios told the Albuquerque Journal. “Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged.”

Hutchins, 42, was director of photography on the 2020 action film Archenemy, starring Joe Manganiello. A 2015 graduate of the American Film Institute, she was named a “rising star” by American Cinematographer in 2019.

“I’m so sad about losing Halyna. And so infuriated that this could happen on a set,” said the Archenemy director, Adam Egypt Mortimer, on Twitter. “She was a brilliant talent who was absolutely committed to art and to film.”

“The details are unclear at this moment, but we are working to learn more, and we support a full investigation into this tragic event,” the International Cinematographers Guild’s president, John Lindley, and executive director Rebecca Rhine said in a statement.

Khaligraph’s baby mama Cashy, also a rapper, and whose real name is Karimi Muriungi appeared to finger his former bae for not supporting their child.

Cashy suggested in a Facebook post that his baby daddy would use the dawn to dusk curfew imposed by the government as reasons for not providing.

The curfew was lifted by President Uhuru Kenyatta on October 20, 2021.

“I am actually happy the curfew has been lifted because artists can go back to earning from night gigs!” she pointed out.

“In fact, help me pray for an overflow of events so that your fave rapper will have zero reasons to claim he can’t afford child maintenance its been so hard bana,” she added.

In a tweet, Cashy wrote a similar message, saying she wants her child to go to an expensive international school.

Last year, Cashy again accused Khaligraph of failing to support his child.

“Meanwhile, I’m not smart enough to win some battles on my own, and so I learn and I get stronger. The law is uneven, but some aspects of it have to be fair if not immediately, then one day.

She has also accused him of being verbally and physically violent.
