The accident happened when, what was meant to be a prop gun, ended up being loaded with live projectiles. When Baldwin fired the gun for a scene, the projectiles flew out of the barrel, striking Hutchins, and director Joel Souza. Hutchins was pronounced dead in hospital shortly after being airlifted out of the set. Souza remains in stable condition, and production has been halted on the film.

So much has already been written about this terrible accident, and a criminal investigation is still ongoing into how and why the gun was loaded with real ammo in the first place. Baldwin has been in constant contact with Hutchins' family as well as with the relevant authorities surrounding the case. But this week, the actor and producer of the film spoke on camera for the first time since the accident.

A video has surfaced of Baldwin addressing the incident. The actor looked visibly distressed as he attended to the media's questions. "I'm not allowed to make any comments because it's an ongoing investigation," Baldwin said in the video. "I've been ordered by the sheriff's department in Santa Fe. I can't answer any questions about the investigation. I can't."

Baldwin also pointed out that this was a "one-in-a-trilion" accident, and he made sure to remember Halyna Hutchins with his comments. "She was my friend...she was my friend", said Baldwin. The actor continues to remain in contact with her husband and son, supporting them however he can. "The guy is overwhelmed with grief...he is in shock and he has a nine-year-old son".

So far, the investigation has not turned up any incriminating evidence but it remains to be seen if that will remain the case.
