    SANTA FE, N.M. — A prop firearm discharged by veteran actor Alec Baldwin, who is starring and producing a Western movie, killed his director of photography and injured the director Thursday at the movie set outside Santa Fe, the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office said.

    Sheriff’s officials said Halyna Hutchins, director of photography for the movie “Rust,” and director Joel Souza were shot.

    Hutchins, 42, was airlifted to University of New Mexico Hospital, where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel, authorities said.

    Souza, 48, was taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, where he’s undergoing treatment for his injuries.

    Production has been halted on the film.

    A spokesperson for Baldwin said there was an accident on the set involving the misfire of a prop gun with blanks.

    I’m waiting until he finds a way to blame this on Trump.

    What Is a Prop Gun and How Can It Fire Deadly Shots
    Shooting involving Alec Baldwin prompts questions

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/prop-gun-what-alec-baldwin-11634922660

    This explains how a prop gun shooting blanks can harm someone...but two people? No details offered. I would like to know how many shots were fired. I mean...if you have one person bleeding out on the ground, why continue the scene? Way too many unanswered questions for a news story.

    Everyone probably knows by now, but the "armorer" loaded live rounds into the gun. So now the new question is..."Why were live rounds allowed anywhere near the set? ...let alone put into the prop gun?".

    From what I read it sounds like she was a diversity hire.

    Nicholas Cage once got hwr kicked off of set after there were shots fired without warning.
    I don’t remember who but someone said “a 24 year old woman has no place as an ‘experienced’ armorer’” or something like that, and this person had worked with her.

    Am I the only one wondering who she slept with to get the job?

    I tend to agree that someone test-shot a Load on that hire decision....

    Seems I heard the gun was misloaded. I am not quite sure how the victims were directors on the set and not other actors. If you are having a gunfight scene or what have you, aren’t you shooting in the direction of your nemesis rather than the directors chair? Makes me think Baldwin was horsing around with the fire arm.

    The Sherriff's report stated Mr. Baldwin was practicing a "fast draw" at the time, while there was a break, and was doing so facing the camera. I assume this was a Kennedy-type u-turn bullet.

    He further stated there was a supply of of 500+ Blanks in the box, with some wads and a few live Rounds were found.
    I am thinking along your line of enquiry: somebody may not like somebody else.

    What I fear will happen is that this accident will be held as an example of why the left needs to protect us all from our firearms. Any rube knows that any firearm is to be handled as though it is loaded and deadly. And a confirmed horses ass of a man that disregards that simple rule needs to face the music. Not be used as a reason to protect the rest of us from our firearms. We aren’t all pompous horses asses and we understand respecting our firearms.

    The MSM seems to be purposely obscuring the facts. Baldwin is also the "producer" of he film. He's responsible to see that the safety protocols are followed. Fox News is the only outlet accurately reporting the story...

    It's just a matter of time before we hear that an "unidentified Trump supporter" put the live rounds in the gun. After all, isn't it a CNN cameraman who's in jail for threatening to kill Matt Gaetz and his family. These movie folks are a squirrelly bunch.

    "According to the indictment, Huelsman allegedly said, "Tell (MG) to watch his back, tell him to watch his children… I'm coming for him… I'm gonna f---ing kill him... I'm gonna put a bullet in you and I'm gonna put a bullet in one of your f---ing kids too.""

    "Huelsman had received multiple Emmy Award nominations for his work as a camera operator, working on multiple reality series, as well as with late-night comedian Conan O’Brien. He has worked for numerous networks over the years, including CNN."
