Director Joel Souza was injured from the gun, but later released from a hospital.
The shooting occurred when Baldwin pulled the trigger on a gun that he was told was unloaded, according to a search warrant executed by the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s office.
Baldwin issued a statement on Twitter on Friday saying, “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.”
