Fatal shot: “I did not pull the trigger,” says Alec Baldwin


The trigger has not been pulled […] I didn’t pull the trigger, says the actor in an excerpt made public Wednesday of his first formal interview since the drama of October 21, the entirety of which is to be broadcast Thursday evening by the American channel ABC.

During this interview, Alec Baldwin adds that he did not no idea of how live ammunition may have gotten onto the film set, resulting in the accidental death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

I would never point a gun at someone when I pulled the trigger. Never, he claims.

In this interview excerpt, Alec Baldwin does not give more details to explain how the revolver was able to trigger and fire the fatal bullet.

The actor was working on a scene where his character draws a gun when Halyna Hutchins was hit.

The weapon in question was supposed to contain only dummy bullets. When asked how a real bullet could have gotten into the barrel of the revolver, Alec Baldwin replies: I’ve no idea.

Someone put a live bullet into a gun. A bullet that wasn’t supposed to be there.

The police investigation continues and, if no arrests have taken place, criminal prosecution is not excluded in the event that responsibilities are established, said the services of the prosecutor of Santa Fe (New Mexico).

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the gunsmith who was responsible for the guns on the set of Rust, told investigators she was negligent in checking the gun wielded by the actor just before the tragedy. She also says she has no explanation for the presence of live ammunition on the scene.

On Tuesday, investigators reported possible leads that could explain the presence of this ammunition, formally prohibited on set by the rules in force in the film industry in the United States.

One of the suppliers of the ammunition used on the set of Rust, Seth Kenney, said he potentially sold the film crew handcrafted ammunition – possibly from recycled items – whose logo matches the logo on the lethal cartridge.
