Joel Souza thanked the “thousands of strangers” who have shown their support.

Film director Joel Souza said Saturday that he is “devastated by the loss” of his “friend and colleague” Halyna Hutchins after a firearm accident.

It is Souza’s first statement since the accident occurred last Thursday on the set of Rust, the film he directed in New Mexico, United States.

Hutchins was killed and Souza was injured when actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop pistol containing a real bullet.

Souza thanked his followers for their “outpouring of affection.”
