Alec Baldwin, a Hollywood actor, held a private tribute on Friday night for the 42-year-old cinematographer he mistakenly shot and murdered on his film set with a toy pistol.

On Thursday, October 21, Halyna Hutchins, 42, was tragically killed when Baldwin fired a fake pistol filled with live ammo.

According to Showbiz 411, her husband and kid attended the ceremony in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which featured grief counselors on the scene.

The International Cinematographers Guild Local 600 has scheduled a public commemoration for Sunday night in Santa Fe.

Baldwin took to Twitter on Friday to address Thursday’s “tragic accident,” saying he’d been in contact with Hutchins’ husband.

The actor wrote: ‘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.’

Hutchins’ grieving husband Matthew told DailyMail.com on Friday morning that he had spoken with the actor.

‘I have spoken with Alec Baldwin and he is being very supportive,’ he said.

After the fatal shooting, Baldwin was heard asking people around him why he’d been handed a ‘hot gun’.

‘In all my years, I’ve never been handed a hot gun,’ he was heard saying.

Later Friday night Baldwin tweeted a Variety article titled Alec Baldwin Was Told Prop Gun Was Safe Before Fatal Shooting, Affidavit Says.

The article that Baldwin tweeted states that the prop gun that was handed to him ‘was declared safe by the production’s assistant director Dave Halls’ who ‘shouted “cold gun” on set, meaning that the prop gun was safe to use and did not contain any live ammo,’ according to the affidavit.

It also claims that the assistant director said he ‘did not know live rounds were in the prop gun’ which was prepared by armourer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed beforehand.
