Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on set, killing cinematographer and wounding the writer-director

Alec Baldwin was filming a new movie that ended up in a tragedy.  Alexander Rae Baldwin III is an American actor, writer, comedian, film producer, and political activist.  Baldwin, who is also a producer of the movie, Rust, fired a prop gun during filming.

Halyna Hutchins, 42, was shot while working on the set as director of photography.  Responding to the news, many Tweeps took to their Twitter pages to express their sadness.

One Tweep said:”Oh, no! And I like Alec Baldwin.  It looks like an accident and Baldwin was reportedly "in tears" afterward.  It just goes to show you can't trust "prop guns". You don't ever in your life point a gun at somebody unless you intend to shoot it.”

Another Tweep said:”This is horrific.  I remember when Brandon Lee was killed by a prop gun while filming The Crow. So tragic.”  It is reported that Writer-director Joel Souza, who was wounded in a tragic incident on the New Mexico set of his film “Rust” that took the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, has been released from the hospital.
