According to IndieWire on Friday (October 22), the prop gun contained a “live single round,” via an email sent by union IATSE Local 44 to its members.

The union also said that New Mexico crew members staffed the props, set decoration, special effects and construction departments, not the union’s members.

“A live single round was accidentally fired on set by the principal actor, hitting both the Director of Photography, Local 600 member Halyna Hutchins, and Director Joel Souza,” the email reads.

“Local 44 has confirmed that the Props, Set Decoration, Special Effects and Construction Departments were staffed by New Mexico crew members. There were no Local 44 members on the call sheet.”

Secretary-Treasurer Anthony Pawluc described it as “an accidental weapons discharge.”

Producers issued a statement shortly after news broke.

Stephen Baldwin just opened up about his brother Alec‘s horrible accident.
