“No,” Hutchins reportedly replied. “That was no good. That was no good at all.”
Halyna was then airlifted to a nearby hospital where was she was later pronounced dead.
“I was looking right at her, I could see an exit wound that immediately started pouring blood and that’s when [people screamed] ‘She’s shot!’ and everything went crazy,” another crew member reportedly shared after Baldwin fired a shot from “an antique-era appropriate gun” on the set of his film, according to Santa Fe District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies. The film’s director Joel Souza was also injured.
The 63-year-old actor was reportedly shocked after the gun went off and was repeating the phrase, “What the f— just happened?” over and over again.
Baldwin shot Hutchins with a gun he believed had no live ammunition, according to a search warrant obtained by the outlet.
