Alec Baldwin fired prop gun on set, killing cinematographer

Alec Baldwin settled a lawsuit filed by loved ones of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins who was killed on the set of his movie “Rust,” the actor’s lawyer said Wednesday.

Hutchins, 42, was fatally shot and director Joel Souza, then 48, wounded in the Oct. 21, 2021, incident in New Mexico when a live round was discharged from a gun held by Baldwin, who shares screen and producer credits on the suspended movie.

The cinematographer’s family filed a lawsuit in February against  Baldwin and others involved in the film, accusing them of reckless behavior and cost-cutting measures led to the tragedy.
