911 call reveals new details about Alec Baldwin shooting accident

A 911 call from the set of Alec Baldwin’s upcoming movie has revealed new details about the accidental shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

The 42-year-old was pronounced dead on Thursday, after Alec’s prop gun misfired on set – killing the film’s cinematographer and injuring director Joel Souza.

In audio of a 911 call obtained by TMZ, the film’s script supervisor explained that the incident occurred while they were rehearsing a scene.

The caller told the operator: “We have two people accidentally shot on a movie set by a prop gun. We need help immediately.”

When asked if the gun was loaded with a real bullet, the woman said she didn’t know but confirmed that it was the movie’s “director” and “camerawoman” who were shot.

The caller could then be heard telling someone: “They just f***ing yelled at me at lunch talking about revisions. These motherf***ers…”

“Did you see him come up to my desk and yell at me? He’s supposed to check the guns. He’s responsible for what happened.”

The woman said she was unaware if there was any “serious bleeding”, before passing the phone to a male, who said that the victims were “alert”.

He also confirmed that there was “one wound on two individuals” and that they were being treated by a medic on set.

Officers were called to the Bonanza Creek Ranch in New Mexico, where the incident occurred, at about 1.50 pm on Thursday, after receiving the 911 call.

Halyna, 42, was transported via helicopter to University of New Mexico Hospital, but was later pronounced dead.

In a statement on Friday, Alec described the incident as a “tragic accident”.

Taking to Twitter, 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,” he added.

The incident is currently being investigated by police officials, but no charges have been filed.
