UPDATED 10/23, 7:55 p.m. ET: An assistant director on the set of the Alec Baldwin film Rust yelled “cold gun” Thursday before Baldwin fired the prop weapon, which killed a cinematographer and injured a director, according to a court document.

Assistant director David Halls, who reportedly did not know there were live rounds in the gun, handed Baldwin the weapon, as the “cold gun” comment was meant to indicate the weapon didn’t have live rounds, according to a Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office affidavit for a search warrant, obtained by CNN affiliate KOAT.

The affidavit reads that the live rounds ended up hitting cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in the chest and injuring director Joel Souza. Hutchins was soon airlifted and reportedly then pronounced dead at a hospital.

“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,” Baldwin wrote on Twitter. “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.”
