Actor Alec Baldwin has reportedly now killed a crew member from a new film he was shooting and wounded its director during filming with a gun which was supposed to be a prop but which was apparently somehow loaded with real bullets.

The crew member Baldwin killed was the director a photography, Halyna Hutchins, who was 42 years old and reportedly died at the hospital.

As The Santa Fe New Mexican reports:

Actor Alec Baldwin discharged a “prop firearm” Thursday on a movie set south of Santa Fe, killing the director of photography for the film he was working on and wounding its director, the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office said.

Baldwin is one of the film’s stars as well as a producer. He went to the sheriff’s office willingly and provided a statement to investigators, sheriff’s office spokesman Juan Ríos said.

“We’re treating this as we would any other investigation,” Ríos said, adding deputies were still trying to determine whether what happened was an accident.

The prop was fired at Bonanza Creek Ranch, where filming was underway, the sheriff’s office said in an early evening news release. The set was locked down while deputies began their investigation.

So far charges have not been filed against Baldwin. The investigation is still ongoing and all filming for the movie, entitled ‘Rust’ has been shut down for the time being

Baldwin has become well known in recent years for his scornful portrayal of former President Trump on ‘Saturday Night Live.’

Why did Baldwin not check the chamber himself If he was to handle a gun. Anyone that is handling a gun must goes thru gun safety My sons went thru that at age 12 yrs old. & their father always pounded into them about gun safety when they go hunting along with a gun safety course with him each year before hunting. My sons are now senior citizens. Now we talk to our grandchildren the same way

I recall a few years back, a popular actor on a show I never watched (hence the lack of names in my missive) put a prop .45 up to his head and pulled the trigger, knowing there was a blank in the chamber. He thought it would be a lark.

What he failed to understand was that the blank charge drove a .45 sized chunk of skull into his brain. Dead at the scene.

The actor in question was Brandon Lee, son of legendary martial artist and film star, Bruce Lee. It was not a TV show. Rather, they were filming the sequel to “The Crow”, a surprise hit movie. Otherwise, your description of events is correct. It requires a fairly powerful charge to cycle a semi-automatic pistol, meaning that, even with blanks, there’s a lot of force exiting the gun’s barrel, quite enough, at close range, to punch a hole through one’s skull, turning that piece of bone into the bullet.

Actually it was Jon eric hexum who shot himself in the head with a blank round while goofing off during filming. Brandon Lee was killed while filming a scene that the character was supposed to be shot multiple times, the blood packets hid the actual bullet wound and no one new he had been shot until the scene was finished.

I remember that incident like it was yesterday . Blanks contain gunpowder ,and just as deadly a one with real bullets . It’s the concussion that kills .

Except a point blank range you don’t kill someone with a blank load. Someone possibly deliberately sabotaged the gun. A second person wounded is very odd but possible if you’re an idiot like Baldwin.
