Hollywood star Alec Baldwin said Friday his “heart is broken” after he fatally shot a cinematographer in a shocking on-set tragedy, Oyogist.com reports.
Recall that Oyogist had earlier reported how American actor, Alec Baldwin, had accidentally discharged a prop gun on a movie set on Thursday, leading to the death of the film’s director of photography and injury of its director.
The actor, who shot Halyna Hutchins, said he was fully cooperating with a police investigation.
“There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” he tweeted.
He added: “My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”
The rest of the cast and crew of “Rust” — where Baldwin is playing the lead in a 19th century film about an accidental killing — were “devastated” by the incident, they said in a statement to US media, and production has been suspended.
