The late 42-year-old mom was pronounced dead at a hospital in Santa Fe, New Mexico, hours later. Her chilling last words were documented by the Los Angeles Times. The outlet spoke to 14 crew members via emails and text messages.

According to their report, moments before the prop gun that Baldwin was holding shot a "live round," the actor was preparing for his upcoming scene. He was reportedly standing in front of a makeshift church with his hand on the holster of what he was allegedly told was a "cold gun."

The term is used in the industry to signify that the weapon is safe for rehearsal.

“So, I guess I’m gonna take this out, pull it and go, ‘Bang!’” Baldwin reportedly said before the gun went off, striking Halyna in the chest and the film's director Joel Souza in the shoulder.

As the crew rushed to Halyna's side while she bled from her chest, she reportedly looked at a boom operator and said, “Oh, that was no good. No, that was no good. That was no good at all."
