Alec Baldwin has said he is 'shocked' after a prop gun fired by him at the set of a movie in New Mexico left a cinematographer dead.

Alec said he is cooperating with the police investigation process.

"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 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."

Alec Baldwin landed himself in trouble on Thursday when cinematographer Halyna Hutchins died and director Joel Souza was hurt as he fired a prop gun on a set in New Mexico on Thursday, media reports said.

Police in the US state said Baldwin discharged the weapon during filming for the 19th Century western Rust, reports BBC.
