An accident on the set of Alec Baldwin’s movie, "Rust," at the Bonanza Creek Ranch on the outskirts of Sante Fe, New Mexico, sent two members of the film crew to the hospital. One of them, a woman, has died, Fox News has confirmed.

A press release from the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department said deputies were dispatched to the set around 1:50 p.m. local time, and the call indicated that an individual had been shot.

Investigators said that the prop firearm was being used during filming when it was discharged by Baldwin, hitting his director of photography, Halyna Hutchins and director Joel Souza. Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged, the sheriff said.


According to the media release, one shooting victim – a 42-year-old female – was transported via helicopter to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she later died, the sheriff’s office confirmed.

The second victim – a 42-year-old male – was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent’s Hospital, where he is undergoing emergency treatment.

A production spokesperson from Rust Movie Productions LLC told Deadline in a statement Thursday that the accident  involved "the misfire of a prop gun with blanks" and that "production has been halted for the time being."

"The safety of our cast and crew remains our top priority," the statement adds.

I don't care what anyone says. If I'm an actor and need to point and pull the trigger at someone I'm checking the chamber, clip or cylinder. I just couldn't pull the trigger if I didn't. 

Must be said again.
