The film’s writer and director Joel Souza was also injured in the incident but is expected to survive.

Alec Baldwin has been identified as the person who fired the prop gun that killed Halyna Hutchins. He has not yet been charged in this tragic accident. The production of the film has been halted for an undetermined period of time.

“There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” Baldwin tweeted on Friday.

“I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Named a “rising star” by American Cinematographer in 2019, Halyna Hutchins is known for her work on Archenemy (2020), Darlin’ (2019), and Blindfire (2020).

“She’s a wonderful, positive, creative person that was so excited to be breaking through and making movies,” Michael Pessah, a cinematographer who was a friend of the Ukraine-born, Los Angeles-based cinematographer, told Variety. “She was really on the upswing.”

Santa Fe’s Sheriff’s Department said, “Santa Fe County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the Bonanza Creek Ranch movie set of the western Rust, October 21, 2021, when a 911 caller reported a shooting on the set.”

“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,” they concluded.
