Cinematographer dead, director injured on film set after prop gun fired by actor Alec Baldwin misfires

Authorities confirmed on Thursday that a cinematographer working on the film “Rust” has died, and the director has been hospitalized, after an accident during filming involving actor Alec Baldwin misfiring a prop gun. The Western, starring Baldwin and Jensen Ackles of “Supernatural,” began filming this month at Bonanza Creek Movie Ranch, a film location in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that deputies with the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office responded to the film set around 2 p.m. local time after a 911 caller “reported a shooting on the set.” Two people were shot after a prop firearm was discharged during filming, authorities said. Baldwin fired the prop gun, striking the film’s director, Joel Souza, and director of photography, Halyna Hutchins, the sheriff’s office said in a follow-up statement Thursday night. Detectives are still determining “how and what type of projectile was discharged,” the sheriff’s office said earlier.

Hutchins, 42, was transported via helicopter to University of New Mexico Hospital, the state’s only Level 1 trauma center, “in critical condition,” according to sheriff’s deputies and the hospital. She later succumbed to her injuries, the sheriff’s office said. Souza, 48, was brought in an ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center and is receiving emergency care, authorities said.

FBI announce that dental records confirm the remains found at Florida environmental park are those of Brian Laundrie

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has confirmed that the human remains found at a North Port, Florida environmental park on Wednesday belong to 23-year-old Brian Laundrie. The FBI’s Denver Division wrote in a press release on Thursday that medical examiners used a comparison of dental records to positively identify the remains.

A North Port, FL police spokesperson earlier had confirmed that partial human remains recovered at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park where Laundrie was last believed to have been a day ago were described as “skeletal.” Two senior law enforcement officials also revealed that the human remains discovered yesterday at the Carlton Reserve during the search for Laundrie include a portion of a human skull.

The latest development Thursday comes after Steven Bertolino, attorney for the Laundrie family, said the remains found at Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park by parents Chris and Roberta the morning prior were likely those of the missing 23-year-old. The FBI field office in Tampa confirmed the basic findings at a news conference Wednesday. In addition to the human remains, the FBI said investigators found a backpack and a notebook believed to belong to Laundrie near a path at the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park. The agency revealed that the items were underwater up until recently, and were only found now that the water had receded.

Officials said that the FBI teams will likely be on scene processing potential evidence for several days and the park will remain closed to the public until further notice.

Cleveland Browns’ QB Baker Mayfield expected to undergo shoulder surgery following 2021 season

According to NFL Network, Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is expected to need surgery to repair the torn labrum in his left shoulder. It is believed that Mayfield could hold off on the surgery until the offseason, as long as the pain does not become unmanageable.

Mayfield tore his labrum in Week 2 and re-injured his shoulder last Sunday in the Browns’ loss to the Cardinals after taking a hard hit from J.J. Watt. He missed the first start of his career on Thursday when the Browns played the Broncos, and will have two weeks off before the Browns’ next game on October 31 against the Steelers.

Of Mice & Men release video for ‘Fighting Gravity’ and announce new album ‘Echo’

Following their EP’s Timeless and Bloom, Of Mice & Men are combining the two – plus a brand-new one – into their upcoming seventh album, Echo.

The 10-track record is due out on December 3;  the band calls it ​“a snapshot of the last year-and-a-half of our lives. It covers loss and growth, life and impermanence, love, and the infinite – how the most wonderful and most tragic parts of the human experience are deeply intertwined.”

To mark the announcement, OM&M have also dropped a new single and video, ‘Fighting Gravity,’ which Aaron Pauley says is about ​“learning to let go, while also recognizing the impermanence and shortness of life. We think we’re in control of so much, but we’re really not, and that existential dilemma is at the foundation of the human condition.”

Watch the video for ‘Fighting Gravity‘ – here.
