White House calls movie set shooting a “tragedy”

Hollywood was shaken on Friday (October 22) by news that actor Alec Baldwin had fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza while firing a prop gun on the “Rust” movie set in New Mexico.

Hollywood star Alec Baldwin said on Friday “my heart is broken” after a cinematographer died when he fired a prop gun on a New Mexico movie set, adding that he was cooperating with a police investigation to determine how the incident occurred.

White House Spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters there was no official U.S. reaction but called the incident a “tragedy” and conveyed “thoughts and prayers” to the victims families.

Baldwin, 63, is a co-producer of “Rust”, a Western movie set in 1880s Kansas, and also plays the eponymous character who is an outlaw grandfather of a 13-year-old boy convicted of an accidental killing.

The sheriff’s office said on Friday that no charges had been filed and the investigation remains open. Baldwin voluntarily gave a statement about the shooting at the sheriff’s office, the Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper reported.
