Alec Baldwin has met the family of the late film photographer Halyna Hutchins after the fatal shooting incident that happened last week on the set of his upcoming film, Rust.
The three-time Emmy Award winner, 63, sat down for breakfast with Halyna’s husband Matthew Hutchins and their 9-year-old son Andros on Saturday morning at La Posada in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a source tells PEOPLE.
A noticeably gloomy Baldwin later said goodbye to Matthew and Andros with a hug. “Honestly, he did not look good,” the insider shares, adding that the group was “definitely sad” during their breakfast.

“I’ve talked to Alec Baldwin and he’s very supportive,” Matthew said Daily mail Friday, after Baldwin fired the prop pistol that killed Halyna, 42.
“I do not think there are words to communicate the situation,” he told Insider on Friday.

“I will not be able to comment on the facts or the process of what we are going through right now, but I appreciate that everyone has been very sympathetic,” Matthew added. “I think we need to spend some time before we can really encapsulate her life in a way that is easy to communicate.”
After Humans confirmed that one crew member died and another was critically injured Thursday on the set of the upcoming Western movie, the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that Halyna and director Joel Souza were “shot when a plug weapon was unloaded by Alec Baldwin, producer and actor. “
Authorities responded to a call from 911 from Rust set at Bonanza Creek Ranch around 1:50 p.m. local time Thursday. Halyna was transported to the University of New Mexico Hospital, where she died of her injuries. Souza, 48, was released Friday from Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, where he underwent treatment for his injuries.

“There are no words to convey my shock and grief over the tragic accident that took the lives of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” Baldwin wrote in a statement on Twitter Friday.
“I am fully cooperating with the police investigation to resolve how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband and offer my support to him and his family,” he continued. “My heart is broken for her husband, their son and everyone who knew and loved Halyna.”

One source also told people that Baldwin was “hysterical and absolutely inconsolable for hours,” and he seeks to “take some time for himself and re-center himself,” as he cancels his other projects.
“This was pretty devastating. That’s how he handles hard times. When something bad happens, in the short term, he moves away from [the] public eye, “said the insider, adding:” Everyone knows this was an accident, but he is completely devastated. “
