Hollywood A-Lister Kills Cinematographer on Set of New Movie

In some of the most shocking news to come out of Hollywood in some time, one of the industry’s most recognizable actors has now shot and killed some of the staff of his own movie.

The incident was first reported on Thursday evening, and is said to have occurred under terribly unlucky circumstances.

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.

So, what happened?

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 incident had many on Twitter reminiscing about Brandon Lee, son of famous Kung Fu artist Bruce Lee, who died on the set of a movie after being accidentally shot by an alleged prop gun as well.
