Hollywood star Alec Baldwin had accidentally fired a prop gun that killed a cinematographer and wounded the director while the actor was shooting for the movie 'Rust' in New Mexico. The woman, identified as Halyna Hutchins (42), was immediately flown to hospital by helicopter but succumbed to her injuries.

Police have been investigating the case and no charges were filed. Alec Baldwin has now opened up about the tragedy and said that his heart is broken. "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. I'm fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna," he wrote.

Santa Fe sheriff spokesman Juan Rios had earlier said that Alec Baldwin was interviewed by detectives and that no arrests were made. Stating that the shooting happened in the middle of a scene that was being rehearsed, the spokesman informed, "He provided statements and answered their questions. He came in voluntarily and he left the building after he finished his interviews. No charges have been filed and no arrests have been made."
