Authorities said that Hollywood actor Alec Baldwin fatally shot a cinematographer and wounded a director when he discharged a prop gun on a movie set in New Mexico on Thursday.

Alec Baldwin Kills Halyna Hutchins by Firing Prop Gun on Movie Set

Baldwin shot Halyna Hutchins, the photography director of "Rust," and Joel Souza, the film's director, at the Bonanza Creek Ranch, a production location south of Santa Fe, according to the Santa Fe Sheriff's Department.

Hutchins was transported by helicopter to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Souza was taken by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center to undergo treatment for his injuries. The severity of his injuries could not immediately be determined.

Actress Frances Fisher said on Twitter that "Souza texted me that he's out of the hospital." Asked whether Souza had been discharged, medical center spokesperson Arturo Delgado said he could not release information about patients.

The Sheriff's office said that no charges had been filed, and they are investigating the shooting and interviewing witnesses.

"The investigation remains open and active," the Sheriff's office said in a statement.

Entertainment news site Deadline cited a source in the Sheriff's office as saying that Baldwin was questioned by investigators and later released.

Baldwin went to the Sheriff's office willingly and provided a statement to investigators, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported, citing spokesperson Juan Rios.

Deputies were still trying to determine whether what happened was an accident, the newspaper added. Rios did not immediately respond to requests for information from Reuters.

Baldwin's representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Earlier on Thursday, news magazine, People reported that a spokesperson for Baldwin had said there was an "accident" involving the "misfire of a prop gun with blanks."

Baldwin was seen "distraught and in tears" as he spoke on the phone outside the Sheriff's office headquarters on Thursday, the Santa Fe New Mexican wrote.

Baldwin, 63, is a co-producer of "Rust," a Western movie set in 1880s Kansas, and plays the eponymous character, an outlaw grandfather of a 13-year-old boy convicted of an accidental killing.

Production of the film had been halted for an "undetermined period," several news outlets quoted the film's production company, Rust Movie Productions LLC, as saying.

An e-mail to an address for the film production, listed on a New Mexico government statement, went unanswered.

The shooting evoked memories of an on-set accident in 1993 when U.S. actor Brandon Lee, son of Bruce Lee, died aged 28 after being fatally wounded by a prop gun filming "The Crow."

"Our hearts go out to the family of Halyna Hutchins and Joel Souza and all involved in the incident on 'Rust.' A gun should ever kill no one on a film set. Period" said a tweet from Lee's account, which his sister handles.


The accident renewed debate about whether certain types of prop guns should be banned.

"This suggestion doesn't help any of them, but it's time to stop being macho about blanks and end the practice," said Ben Rockula, a director.

Earlier on Thursday, Baldwin posted a picture of himself on Instagram sporting a grey beard and dressed in Western cowboy-style attire in front of trailers. He appeared to have a fake bloodstain on his shirt and jacket.

"Back to in person at the office. Blimey ... it's exhausting," he wrote. The post was deleted late on Thursday night.

Known for his impersonations of former U.S. President Donald Trump on NBC's comedy sketch show "Saturday Night Live," Baldwin has a long history in film and television, including roles in "Glengarry Glen Ross" and "30 Rock."

According to her website, Hutchins, 42, who was originally from Ukraine and grew up on a Soviet military base in the Arctic Circle, she was once worked as an investigative reporter in Europe.

According to her website biography, she graduated from the American Film Institute in 2015 and was selected as one of the American Cinematographers' Rising Stars of 2019.

She described herself as a "Restless Dreamer" and an "Adrenaline junkie" on her Instagram page.

Her last post, two days ago, shows her grinning under a wide-brimmed hat as she rides a horse. "One of the perks of shooting a western is you get to ride horses on your day off:)." she captioned the video.

April Wright, a writer, director, and producer, paid tribute to her on Facebook.

"I'm in disbelief," wrote Wright. "So young, vibrant, and talented. Such a wonderful soul. My heart goes out to her son and family."

"I can't believe that this could happen in this day and age ... gunfire from a prop gun could kill a crew member? This is a horrible tragedy," said actor Joe Manganiello, who worked with Hutchins on the 2020 action movie "Archenemy."

Representatives for Hutchins did not immediately respond to a request for information about her death.

According to the IMDB website, Souza, 48, lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and two children. His LinkedIn page credits him as the "writer/director" of Crown Vic's action film comedy Christmas Trade.

"This is still an active investigation, and we do not yet have all the facts," said SAG-AFTRA, which describes itself as the world's biggest labor union representing performers and broadcasters.

"We will continue to work with production, the other unions, and the authorities to investigate this incident and to understand how to prevent such a thing from happening again."

8 Top Online Hustles To Earn Money in 2021

Americas SBDC recently released a survey that showed that more than 60% of Americans want to be their boss rather than working for someone else.

8 Top Online Hustles To Earn Money in 2021

According to the same research, nearly half of all millennials in the United States want to become self-employed over the next three years.

The idea of defining your working circumstances is appealing since you will not have to answer to anybody else. Falling under pressure and wishing to leave because of a hostile work environment also plays a significant role.

That being said, being an entrepreneur or a freelancer is not easy. People are encouraged to seek new sources of income rather than methods to conserve money in a capitalistic society.

Ideally, you should have some money and the flexibility to devote some time to start a business. Still, if that is not the case, you must adopt a different strategy.

Instead of aiming too high and failing, start small and cultivate a talent or combination of skills you may later convert into a lucrative business.

Some efforts may fail, which is to be expected. Still, such failures are invaluable in teaching you how things operate in the real world. And, regardless of what business you will run in the future, most skills you learn should not go to spend regardless of what business you will do in the future. It's all about accumulating experience.

Who knows, you may get to the point where you don't have to worry about working for someone else because you have people working for you. But first, you must choose a specialty and concentrate on honing your abilities. Online education sites such as Skillshare and Udemy offer many accessible courses on various subjects, and some of the content is free.

Here are some top choices of possible internet business ideas that may be your path to financial independence in exploring various areas.

1. Lead Generation

Creating leads is just one-half of the equation. If a business wants to earn money, it must convert its leads. However, there will be no conversions if there are no leads.

There are many excellent solutions for automating lead generation., for example, is an email validator that reduces bounce rates. At the same time, TrustPulse uses the power of social proof to boost conversions.

However, understanding which tools to employ isn't enough. A superb lead generation specialist is also skilled in the following areas:

  • Identifying the appropriate target audience;
  • Choosing marketing techniques with caution;
  • Using social media platforms;
  • Making a sales funnel
  • Changing bad outreach examples into effective ones.

Because lead generation should be a long-term and ongoing activity based on a system, businesses must locate a person or a team willing to work on the campaign and contribute to the business's development.

2. Video Editing

According to PR Newswire, the worldwide audio and video editing software industry is expected to reach 4.8 billion dollars by 2026. This demonstrates how rapidly the media-editing business will expand.

Learning to edit films does not need the purchase of costly equipment. With a smartphone, anybody can make visually appealing videos. The issue is whether such films would seem professional enough to be sold. Probably not, but the main thing is that you can start experimenting with video editing tools using a smartphone, which you should already have, and then go to more professional software later.

Adobe Premiere Pro and Corel VideoStudio Ultimate are two of the biggest and best video editing software.

Why should you pursue a career as a video editor? In terms of marketing, video content seems to be the king these days. Videos, rather than walls of text, are more straightforward for the ordinary individual to absorb and remember.

Furthermore, look at the most current social media marketing efforts. You will find that companies are concentrating on videos. Collaborations with influencers, behind-the-scenes footage, and even live streaming are all examples of how videos are starting to dominate digital marketing.

3. Website Builder Development

Even if you don't know how to code, you should be able to create a professional-looking website with the help of Duda, Wix, and Squarespace.

These website builders provide a slew of capabilities, like built-in email marketing, online payment gateways, and order fulfillment, to mention a few.

However, employing someone else to do the work is a preferable alternative for someone in a rush and overwhelmed by the various platform options and features.

Paying a developer $10 to $30 per hour to get a website up and operating on a builder platform can save you time and hassle.

Because there is a high need for website builder developers, you may choose one or more platforms to study the ins and outs of and then turn your experience into a lucrative business opportunity.

4. Content Marketing

One should not underestimate the importance of content marketing. Improved brand reputation, awareness, conversion potential, social and referral traffic, and search engine exposure are just a few of the benefits of high-quality content.

At the moment, content marketing strategies include more than simply articles or blog entries. Brands also employ professional ghostwriters when they want to sell e-books on Amazon or develop instructional courses. Such writing professions pay well, implying that there is money to be earned if you can master the art of writing.

Podcasts are also worth mentioning. Listening to podcasts has become a popular hobby in recent years. As a result, if you can establish and develop a podcast, you may expect to work with companies that want you to advertise their products or services.

Finally, there is streaming. Top Twitch TV streamers earn more than six figures. They are comparable to influencers in that a large portion of their revenue comes from sponsorship agreements. Still, there are other monetization options, such as audience contributions. Can you go to the top through streaming? You'd have to test it first to find out.

5. Social Media Management

Even though social media marketing has been around for years, it remains one of the digital marketing foundations.

Globally, there are more than 3 billion active social media users, and this figure will continue to rise.

Things that worked in the past may no longer work in social media marketing. The marketing approach no longer revolves around the creation of new content regularly. No, companies are now focused on targeting the appropriate audience, interacting with their followers, and working with influencers—all of which lead to social selling.

You may use social media automation solutions to outsource or automate certain activities. Sendible, for example, simplifies social media administration by allowing you to plan content ahead of time and send frequent reports to others. At the same time, BuzzSumo is excellent for content ideas.

Nonetheless, the person in charge of social media management is more important than the tools. Cracking the social media code and understanding what various platforms offer businesses may transform into a fantastic entrepreneurial endeavor with the proper tools and experience. All companies will employ a social media manager from small to big if there is a significant benefit.

6. Conversion Rate Optimization

An eCommerce shop owner may believe that the more traffic their website gets, the more money they will generate. To some degree, this is correct since there would be no earnings if there were no website visitors in the first place.

On the other hand, intelligent internet businesses seek to improve their conversion rate without overinvesting in absurd advertising campaigns to generate as many site visitors from unexpected sources as possible.

Even if you lack experience in conversion rate optimization, you may begin trading. You may gradually expand your repertoire and become a CRO expert thanks to ConversionXL and other learning centers.

7. Personal Assistant

Working as a personal assistant offers several advantages. Getting a job with someone you can learn from will be beneficial since you will utilize the collected experience for yourself in the future.

Why are personal assistants in such high demand? Entrepreneurs are busy than ever before, yet they still want to be active on social media and reply to essential communications. The issue is that such laborious work may take a long time.

After obtaining instructions, helpers can do almost any job with adequate preparation. Employers do not have to worry about squandering resources since the duties of personal assistants are generally simple to explain. Having a personal assistant is so popular because of the combination of efficiency and cost.

A trustworthy personal assistant should be technologically intelligent, resourceful, and flexible. Anticipating their executive's requirements and volunteering for different initiatives are also highly valued.

Regardless of whether you lack these characteristics, you may develop them through time and become a dependable personal assistant.

8. Web Designing

Web design and development are still in high demand despite popular belief, and this trend is unlikely to alter. There is no shortage of websites on the Internet, ranging from eCommerce behemoths to stay-at-home mom blogs.

But, are there any assurances that every website will seem professional? Unlikely. There are many poor site examples, typically the product of inexperienced web developers or someone being lazy.

While some website owners may not be concerned with their site's design, 

The majority still want a professional appearance, even more so if their website generates revenue.

By becoming a well-known web designer with a solid portfolio, you will offer your skills to individuals who want to update their existing websites or have one constructed from the ground up.

You may begin as a WordPress or Drupal theme designer and work your way up the ladder by studying other aspects of web building. And with so many courses and tutorials available on YouTube. Being a self-taught web developer should be simple if you mix theory with practice on other online educational platforms.


2021 is a bright year that offers a variety of side hustle opportunities for those ready to adapt to trends and grasp the chance. As long as you commit to mastering one of the skills described in the article, you should be able to locate your first customer and grow your business from there.
