Report: Alec Baldwin Must Have Pulled the Trigger in the "Rust" Shooting

I would have noted the report was issued by the FBI but I wanted you to be interested in the story.

The firearm involved in the fatal "Rust" movie set shooting must have had the trigger pulled, an FBI report found, despite the fact that actor Alec Baldwin previously denied pulling the trigger.


Baldwin fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza last October while filming "Rust" in New Mexico. During an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos later that year, Baldwin denied pulling the trigger on the gun.

"Well, the trigger wasn't pulled, I didn't pull the trigger," he said at the time, adding, "No, no, no, no, no, I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger."

...

With the hammer quarter- or half-cocked, the Colt "could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger," officials said.


Even with the hammer fully cocked, the weapon "could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger while the working internal components were intact and functional," the report observed.

The local medical examiner then issued his report, stating that the shooting was "an accident."

Which... I mean, yeah, we figured that.

The fatal film-set shooting of a cinematographer by actor Alec Baldwin last year was an accident, according to a determination made by New Mexico's Office of the Medical Investigator following the completion of an autopsy and a review of law enforcement reports.

The medical investigator's report was made public Monday by the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office along with numerous reports from the FBI on the revolver and ammunition that were collected following the shooting.

Prosecutors have not yet decided if any charges will be filed in the case, saying they would review the latest reports and were awaiting cell phone data from Baldwin's attorneys.

...

While it's too early to say how much weight the medical investigator's report will carry with the district attorney's office, Baldwin's legal team suggested it was further proof that the shooting was "a tragic accident" and that he should not face criminal charges.

"This is the third time the New Mexico authorities have found that Alec Baldwin had no authority or knowledge of the allegedly unsafe conditions on the set, that he was told by the person in charge of safety on the set that the gun was 'cold,' and believed the gun was safe," attorney Luke Nikas said in a statement.

Well, no, the medical examiner just said it was "an accident." An accident can include something as grave as criminally negligent homicide.


The DA has made no decisions about any charges in the case.

Alec Baldwin would never make an angry, impulsive decision or anything. Like if a woman was barking orders at him and questioning his Act-Ting choices, maybe he might have pointed the gun at her and pulled the trigger to make a point.


Yes, Alec Badlwin has repeatedly demonstrated he has no problems at all with women.
