The spirit that brought us all to this special place remains,” the producers said.Production already had been halted on the set at Bonanza Creek Ranch near Santa Fe since Thursday afternoon, when Baldwin, an actor and producer of the film, accidentally shot Hutchins with a prop gun while rehearsing a shoot-out scene in a wooden church. The production was on the 12th day of a 21-day film shoot.The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, the New Mexico Occupational Health & Safety Bureau and the production firm are investigating.Hutchins was shot once in the chest. She was pronounced dead after being airlifted to a hospital in Albuquerque, about 50 miles away.Director Joel Souza was also injured, but he has been treated and released.The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, in a search warrant released Sunday night, said it would seize “all computer hardware equipment,” including firearms, firearm components, used or unused ammunition (“whether it be live ammunition or prop ammunition”), plus all cameras and film or memory cards.The Sheriff’s Office said it had taken blood, saliva and skin and hair samples but did not disclose whose samples it was testing.“Our hearts are with all of you, as we all go through this tragic time and mourn the loss of our colleague and dear friend, Halyna Hutchins,” the producers said in their email. “We are family and we must stand beside each other as families do in difficult times.” Pages 123 RELATED ARTICLES Captured Colombian drug cartel leader faces potential US extradition Oct 26, 2021 0 0 Poland raises number of soldiers at border as migrant surge continues Oct 26, 2021 0 0 Poland tells EU not to start ‘Third World War’ over judicial fight Oct 26, 2021 0 0 EU medicine regulator begins review procedure for new Covid treatment Amsterdam: The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has begun the review procedure for a new Covid-19 treatment.
