Photo of 'Exhausted-looking' Alec Baldwin Before Fatal Shooting on Set Made Rounds Online
Alec Baldwin has reportedly accidentally killed a crew member on the set of his upcoming movie, "Rust."
Tragedy struck when one member was killed while another was injured after a prop gun was discharged and hit the director of photography, Halyna Hutchins, and Joel Souza, the writer-director.
It has been confirmed that Hutchins has died while Souza is being treated for his injuries.
Production for the movie has been shut down, with the Santa Fe Sheriff's Office is investigating what happened.
What happened before the accident?
Before the tragedy, Alec Baldwin gave his fans a glimpse of the movie set.
The 63-year-old took to his Instagram to share a picture of himself posing in front of two trailers while donning a costume from his movie.
Alec's getup featured dirty boots, jeans, a headscarf on his neck, and a vest, and he completed his look with a very serious expression.
The "30 Rock" star had his jacket in one hand while he held a cowboy hat in his other hand.
In an Instagram Story, Hilaria also shared a screenshot of him FaceTiming each other just three hours before the accident.
The "Bettlejuice" actor looked like he was sitting in a car, perhaps on the way to work.
Social Media Questions Alec Baldwin's State Before The Accident
Fans speculate what the "Mercury Rising" actor's state was before the tragedy that happened on the set of "Rust."
According to Twitter user @TheReaganWay, "Pretty sure that Alec Baldwin was drunk or high when he fatally shot a crew member."
@AppsTrever commented, "No one's asking the question was Alec Baldwin legally drunk when this happened?? I believe he's a full-blown alcoholic no? It's a sad situation it should not of happened."
However, in Alec Baldwin's Instagram post where he posted in front of two trailers, he captioned the photo, "Back to in person at the office. Blimey...it's exhausting."
While in Hilaria's Instagram Story with the screenshot of his actor-husband in FaceTime, Alec looked tired in the picture and had visible bags under his eyes, which only emphasized the comment he made on his published Instagram post.
"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 said.
