The police has confirmed that Alec Baldwin operated the prop gun that killed one ‘Rust’ crew member and injured director Joel Souza on the set of the Western feature film on location in New Mexico.

Director of photography Halyna Hutchins, 42, died not long after being transported to a hospital in Albuquerque. Souza, 48, remains in a local hospital; his condition is unknown, reports ‘Deadline’. “Mr. Baldwin was questioned by investigators and released. No arrests or charges have been filed,” a Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department official told ‘Deadline’.

It was earlier reported that Criminal Investigators were called to the scene at Bonanza Creek Ranch just outside Santa Fe as sources informing us that a principal castmember cocked a gun, hitting a man, 48 and woman, 42, on set. 

The entire location went under lockdown during the investigation. The castmember, now identified as Baldwin, was unaware of the type of ammunition in the gun, we’re told. A rep from the production said that “Production has been halted for the time being” on ‘Rust’ and that “the safety of our cast and crew remains our top priority”.
