The officer also confirmed that no charges have been filed but the investigation remains ongoing as witnesses are being interrogated.

Alec was filming a scene on the set of his new movie that required him to fire a gun that was supposed to be loaded with blanks.

However, tragedy struck when the gun misfired either shrapnel or a bullet, which hit two people on set, Halyna, and Joel.

Shortly after the incident took place, the director was airlifted to a hospital where she died from her injuries.

Joel was also taken to the hospital, where he was in critical condition and received emergency treatment, The Hollywood Reporter revealed.

As of this morning, he had exited the hospital, according to Rust actor Frances Fisher.


In the aftermath of the shooting, a distraught Baldwin was seen doubled over and sobbing in the parking lot of a police station after being questioned by authorities.

Filming has been paused, with a rep saying: “Production has been halted for the time being on Rust. The safety of our cast and crew remains our top priority."

Santa Fe cops said: "According to investigators, it appears the scene being filmed involved the use of a prop firearm when it was discharged.

"Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was discharged.

“The incident remains an active investigation. As more information becomes available, updates will be provided.”

As of October 22, 2021. there have been no charges filed against Alec and the actor has not been arrested.


Just hours before the violent mishap, Alec posed in character on the set in an Instagram post.

In the since-deleted post, he was pictured wearing dirty cowboy boots, a vest, and a bandana while holding a hat looking tired in front of his trailer.

Baldwin said: "Back to in person at the office. Blimey…it’s exhausting."
