Baldwin expresses 'shock,' 'sadness' at shooting cinematographer Hutchins on film set - DW News.

A woman died after being shot with a prop firearm by actor and producer Alec Baldwin on a movie set, police in New Mexico said on Friday.

Officials said cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died of her injuries and that director Joel Souza had also been wounded in the incident.

After nearly a day without commenting, Alec Baldwin took to Twitter, where he wrote that there "are no words to convey my shock and sadness." He called Hutchins a "deeply admired colleague" and said he had been in touch with her family.

Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office said the incident occurred on the set of the independent movie "Rust."

Officials said no charges had been filed against the 68-year-old Baldwin, who was in tears outside the police headquarters, according to witnesses.

Production has been halted on the film.
