Panama City, FL –
SANTA FE, New Mexico (KRQE) – One person died and another injured after a propeller pistol missed the shooting of the western movie “Rust”, starring Alec Baldwin.
MPs responded Thursday afternoon at Bonanza Creek Ranch near Santa Fe, New Mexico, after 911 dispatchers received calls from someone shot on set.
The sheriff’s office said one person, a 42-year-old woman, was airlifted to the University of New Mexico hospital where she later died from her injuries. Another crew member, a 42-year-old man, was injured in the shooting and taken to a Santa Fe hospital for emergency treatment.
“According to investigators, it appears the scene filmed involved the use of a propeller-driven firearm when it was unloaded,” Sheriff Juan Rios spokesman told the Albuquerque Journal. “Detectives are investigating how and what type of projectile was fired.”
The deputies recorded a church on the set which was closed and production was halted.
It was not immediately clear who fired.
Written by Joel Souza, “Rust” also stars Travis Fimmel, Brady Noon, Frances Fisher and Jensen Ackles.
It follows the story of a notorious outlaw played by Baldwin, who runs away with his 13-year-old grandson after the boy was sentenced to hang for the accidental murder of a local rancher.
