"I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna."
On Thursday, it was revealed that Baldwin discharged a prop firearm, resulting in the death of 42-year-old Halyna Hutchins, director of photography for Rust, and the film's director, Joel Souza, was injured.
A statement from the Santa Fe Sherriff's Office confirms that the investigation "remains open and active" and "no charges have been filed in regard to this incident."
This incident is reminiscent of Brandon Lee's death on the set of The Crow in 1993. The actor, son of Bruce Lee, was killed when he was hit by a bullet that was in the barrel of a gun that was supposed to just have blanks.
"Our hearts go out to the family of Halyna Hutchins and to Joel Souza and all involved in the incident on 'Rust,' the statement from the Lee family reads.
"No one should ever be killed by a gun on a film set. Period."
Several people have taken to social media to respond to what happen on the set of Rust.
