Halyna Hutchins' husband reacts to her death on set of Alec Baldwin movie: 'I don't think there are words'




 
  • The husband of ​​cinematographer Halyna Hutchins said he had no "words" following his wife's death.

  • Hutchins was fatally shot Thursday when actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on the set of his latest movie.

  • "I don't think there are words to communicate the situation," Matthew Hutchins told Insider.

The husband of ​​cinematographer Halyna Hutchins - who was fatally shot when actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun on the set of his latest movie - reacted to his wife's death Friday, saying that he had no "words."

"I don't think there are words to communicate the situation," Matthew Hutchins, 38, told Insider by phone. 

He added: "I am not going to be able to comment about the facts or the process of what we're going through right now, but I appreciate that everyone has been very sympathetic." 

"I think that we will need a little bit of time before we can really encapsulate her life in a way that is easy to communicate," Matthew Hutchins said.

Authorities say Baldwin fatally shot 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins, the director of photography, and injured director Joel Souza, 48, when he discharged a prop gun on the set of "Rust," a Western flick he was making in New Mexico on Thursday. 

Santa Fe County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the Bonanza Creek Ranch movie set Thursday after a shooting was reported, officials said. 

Hutchins was rushed via helicopter to the University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead, according to authorities.

Souza was hospitalized for his injuries and later released. 

Baldwin spoke out about the on-set shooting in a tweet Friday, saying his "heart is broken."

"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," Baldwin said.

He continued, "I'm fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred."

Baldwin went on to say that he is "in touch" with Matthew Hutchins, "offering my support to him and his family."

"My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna," he said.

The prop gun that Baldwin fired on the film set contained a "live round," a union covering prop masters reportedly told its members. 

No charges have been filed in connection to the incident. 

Meanwhile, Hollywood colleagues mourned Hutchins' death, calling her an "incredible talent" and a "fantastic person."

"She was a great collaborator and an ally to anyone in front of her camera," actor Joe Manganiello wrote on Instagram. "Everyone who knew her was rooting for her. I can't believe that this could happen in this day and age."
