Alec Baldwin reportedly deleted a photo of himself from his Instagram after Halyna Hutchins was tragically killed by a prop gun he fired.

As per The Sun, the photo from his Instagram - which has since been removed - was a picture of himself on the set of his new movie Rust.

The incident occurred when Baldwin had hold of a prop gun and accidentally discharged it.

Halyna Hutchins, director of photography, was killed and the film's director Joel Souza was injured.

Hutchins was pronounced dead after being airlifted from site and taken to the University of New Mexico Hospital and Souza, was released from hospital earlier today (22 October).

Baldwin has spoken publicly for the first time since the tragic accident.

He wrote: "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."


Santa Fe Sheriff's Office said that deputies were called to the set at around 2.00pm local time following a 911 call that reported a shooting.

The police statement said: "The sheriff's office confirms that two individuals were shot on the set of Rust.

"Halyna Hutchins, 42, director of photography, and Joel Souza, 48, director, were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin, 63, producer and actor.

"Ms Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel.

"Mr Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St Vincent regional medical center where he is undergoing treatment for his injuries.

"This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident."
