Police let Baldwin go after the murder on set — Media

Law enforcement officials interviewed the actor, but no one was charged.

The police conducted a survey and released Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin, who accidentally shot the cameraman and wounded the director on the set of the film Rust. Deadline reports this, citing the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office in New Mexico.

"Baldwin was interviewed by investigators and released. No one has been arrested and no one has been charged," the police officer is quoted as saying.

A spokesman for the movie production company has already commented on the tragedy, calling it an "accident" that occurred due to a misfire of a prop gun with blank cartridges.

Baldwin is known to have fired the gun, which was supposed to be loaded with blanks, and injured cameraman Galina Hutchins, 42, and director Joel Sousa, 48. Although Hutchins was promptly taken to the hospital, doctors were unable to save her life. Souza is also in extremely critical condition. Due to the tragedy, filming has been suspended.

Meanwhile, Hutchins' personal official website states that she is originally from the Soviet Union and "grew up on a Soviet military base near the Arctic Circle, surrounded by reindeer and nuclear submarines," and studied at Kyiv National University, where she earned a master's degree in international journalism. After that, she worked as an investigative journalist. Later, however, she moved to Los Angeles. After graduating there with a course in Cinematography at the AFI Conservatory, she dedicated her life to the film industry. In 2019, she was named a "rising star" by American Cinematographer magazine.

In her personal life, we know that Galina was married to Matthew Hutchins and has a son, Andros, born in 2013.

Hutchins became famous for her work on the films Spotted Enemy, Blindfire, and Darling.

As a reminder, the incident occurred during a shooting scene. The revolver, which Baldwin was shooting, was supposed to be loaded with blank cartridges, but at the time of the shot it turned out that there was a real bullet in the gun.
