FBI confirms Alec Baldwin pulled the trigger in fatal ‘Rust’ shooting

The FBI has almost concluded that actor Alec Baldwin must have fired the gun on the set of the movie “Rust,” which killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, according to a bombshell.

According to an FBI forensic report obtained by ABC News, the gun that delivered the fatal bullet in the Oct. 21 shooting on the New Mexico set “could not be made to fire without pulling the trigger.”

Baldwin, the western film’s star and producer, claimed he thought he was wielding a “cold gun” with no live ammunition when it went off and a live bullet caught Hutchins, killing her. The film’s director, Joel Souza, was injured in the incident.

In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos last December, Baldwin insisted he did not fire the gun.

“The trigger wasn’t pulled,” he said. “I didn’t pull the trigger.”

Baldwin claimed he believed he was dealing with one "cold weapon."

Baldwin and Hannah Gutierrez Reed, who was in charge of all weaponry on the “Rust” set, could not be reached for comment.

The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, which is leading the homicide investigation, received the report and other FBI documents related to the shooting earlier this month, the sheriff’s office told ABC News.
