Almost 10 months have passed since the incident that occurred on the film set Rust in which the cinematographer Halyna Hutchins He died after being accidentally shot by Alex Baldwin. After almost a year of investigations, the FBI concluded in a new forensic report that the weapon that the actor was handling could not be activated without pulling the trigger.
The police document, released by the media ABCNewsdiffers from the statements you made above Alec Baldwin, who claims not to have pulled the trigger of the prop gun during the rehearsal on October 21, 2021 in which Hutchins died.
“The trigger was not pulled,” Alec Baldwin mentioned in December of last year during an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC. “I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger. Never”.
However, the report notes that the Colt .45 caliber revolver could not have been used without pulling the tail of the gun’s trigger. “With the hammer in the positions it was in, the barrel could not be fired without pulling the trigger while internal components were intact and functional“, they point.
The FBI reached this conclusion after conducting a series of accidental discharge tests with the same model of revolver involved in the incident. Although the report acknowledges the limitations of the test: “maybe it is not possible to recreate or duplicate all the circumstances that led to the firing of a firearm without pulling the trigger”.

It is worth mentioning that another part of the investigation is focused on how a round of live ammunition could have made it onto the film setaccording to CNN.
Baldwin, who was holding the firearm at the time of the incident, has stated that he was under the impression that it was a “cold weapon”, meaning one without live ammunition. After what happened in Sant Fe County, New Mexico, the case was classified as an accident by the Office of the Medical Investigator, but investigations continue.
