Alec Baldwin, a rabidly anti-Trump Lefty, shot and killed a crew member on the set of his new film “Rust” in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on Thursday.
According to reports, the mentally unstable actor “accidentally” fired a prop gun, killing one member and critically injuring another.
Authorities are currently conducting a criminal investigation into the fatal gunshot.
Deadline reports: Director of Photography Halyna Hutchins died not long after being transported to a hospital in Albuquerque, NM this afternoon.
A principal cast member cocked a gun, hitting a guy, 42, and a woman, 42, on set, according to Deadline. Criminal Investigators were called to the scene, according to sources. During the investigation, the entire Bonanza Creek Ranch was put under lockdown. We’re informed the castmember had no idea what kind of ammunition was in the gun. “Production on Rust has been halted for the time being,” a spokeswoman for the production said, adding that “the safety of our cast and crew remains our top priority.”
