SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a woman has been killed and a man injured Thursday after they were shot by a prop firearm at a movie set outside Santa Fe. The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office says a 42-year-old woman was airlifted to a hospital, where she died, while a 42-year-old man was getting emergency care at another hospital. Authorities didn’t identify the two people or say if they were actors or crew members.

A spokesperson for Baldwin said there was an accident on the set involving the misfire of a prop gun with blanks.
