Alec Baldwin put out a statement Friday saying he was cooperating with the police in their investigation of the fatal shooting on the set of the film “Rust,” where officials said he had fired a gun used as a prop the day before and killed the movie’s director of photography.
The statement on social media was the first time Mr. Baldwin had spoken publicly about the shooting.
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. I'm fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and
