Alec Baldwin Tells Chris Cuomo He Didn’t Pull Trigger in ‘Rust’ Shooting

August 16, 2022

Alec Baldwin has doubled down that he didn't pull the trigger that killed cinematographer Halina Hutchins on the "Rust" set. The interview with Chris Cuomo comes as the FBI said in a report that its own tests show the gun could not be fired "without a pull of the trigger," which contradicts Baldwin's account of the incident. Baldwin's lawyer says, "The FBI report is being misconstrued. The critical report is the one from the medical examiner, who concluded that this was a tragic accident."
