Hollywood star Alex Baldwin (63) is said to have shot the camerawoman Halyna Hutchins while shooting his new movie, the police officially announced.

Update from October 22nd, 8:50 a.m.:

It is a highly dramatic incident that reached Germany on Friday morning from the USA. Actor Alec Baldwin had fatally injured the 42-year-old camerawoman Halyna Hutchins with a shot and hit director Joel Souza (48). He is to be treated in an intensive care unit.

The Hollywood Reporter

reported, citing police statements, that his life was in danger. Apparently there is currently no evidence of an intentional act.

According to media reports, filming has been suspended for the time being. "The entire cast and crew are deeply shaken by today's tragedy," said the production company, according to the US media, on Thursday evening (local time). "We are fully cooperating with the Santa Fe police and their investigations," it said.

The Hollywood Reporter also

quoted a spokesman for the production company that it was an accident. The gun that was used on the set should therefore have been loaded with blank cartridges. The investigation continued on Thursday evening with the questioning of witnesses. According to the police, no criminal investigation was initially ordered.

The "Santa Fe New Mexican" published pictures of a disturbed looking Baldwin, which are said to have been taken in the parking lot of the location after the tragedy. The newspaper said its reporter saw the actor in tears after being questioned by investigators. The production company offered condolences to Hutchins' family and pledged support to the entire team in "coming to terms with this terrible incident."
