He will certainly have a hard time explaining how to get out of there. There are new reports that Alec Baldwin could be in big trouble. The FBI has concluded that the gun used to kill cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust could not have been fired without the trigger being pulled. Here’s what you need to know.
Hutchins, 42, was killed during filming in October when the revolver Alec Baldwin was holding fired a live round that hit her in the chest and lodged in director Joel Souza’s shoulder. Souza survived the gunshot wound. The forensic report obtained by ABC News says that accidental discharge tests determined that the firearm used in the shooting “could not be made to fire without pulling the trigger.” This conclusion is inconsistent with Baldwin’s earlier statements about the tragedy.
The FBI confirms that Alec Baldwin pulled the trigger on the gun that killed Halyna Hutchins
In his first major interview after the tragedy, the actor said he didn’t pull the trigger on the gun he was holding, adding that he had “no idea” how a live round would hit the set of the low-budget film Films in New Mexico.
The FBI completed its ballistics analysis of evidence in Thursday’s fatal shooting, reports Variety. Detectives have been awaiting FBI analysis before escalating the case to prosecutors for consideration of possible charges.
In April, it was reported that a New Mexico County sheriff released a video of Baldwin rehearsing with an Old West-style revolver on the set of the film before the gun in his hand went off, killing Hutchins. Baldwin has been named in several lawsuits over Hutchin’s death, including one brought by her husband Matthew. The 64-year-old actor has argued in court filings that an indemnity clause in his contract protects him from personal liability.
