Alec Balwin is a co-producer of the film Rust, which was being filmed in New Mexico

A woman has died and a man has been injured after actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on a New Mexico film set.

Police in the US state said Mr Baldwin discharged the weapon during filming for the 19th Century western Rust.

The woman was taken to hospital but died of her injuries. The man, the film's director, was receiving emergency care.

Detectives are investigating the incident at Bonanza Creek Ranch, a popular filming location.

The woman has been named as 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins, who was working as director of photography. The man being treated is Joel Souza, 48, the film's director.

Police said their investigation remains open and active, and no charges have yet been filed in relation to the incident.

Ms Hutchins was a graduate of the American Film Institute and had been named a "rising star" by American Cinematographer magazine in 2019.

In a statement to Variety magazine, the International Cinematographer's Guild said Ms Hutchins' death was "devastating news" and "a terrible loss".

Police said sheriff's deputies were dispatched to Bonanza Creek Ranch at around 13:50pm MST (19:30 GMT) after receiving an emergency call about a shooting on set.

Mr Baldwin, 68, is a co-producer of the film and plays its namesake, an outlaw named Rust, whose 13-year-old grandson is convicted of an accidental murder.

This immediately reminded me of what happened to Brandon Lee in 1993. He was acting in a movie called The Crow when he was fatally shot due to an error with a gun that they were using in the movie.

His death was even more painful because CBN News had done a feature on him just a few weeks before the accident (CBN News was shown on Lagos Television in the 1980s and 1990s).

There had been uncountable rumours in Nigeria about the deaths of Bruce Lee and Bob Marley and those rumours resurfaced after Brandon Lee's death.

I don't get how a prop gun can be so lethal. Ordinarily, you need about six pounds of force for a bullet to be lethal. Do prop guns especially in this case an old revolver replica (since it's a western and I'm assuming it's a side arm) generate such force ? He must have accidentally hit that perfect spot that caused the kill or it was loaded with live rounds

Brandon Lee died few years to when I was born. I've wondered why did Bruce Lee and his son died a young age while acting.
Such a brilliant star ★ dismissed
America should know better, make dem use safer gun or toy gun like us here.

Yeah, he could just walk if it is established that there's no motive and that it was purely an accident on set. Dude should be able to afford a good lawyer.

my own question is, would the company be sued for even carrying a real gun loaded with bullets in a movie
