‘Rust’ movie shooting: FBI forensic report concludes Alec Baldwin pulled the trigger on film set

A new investigation from the FBI suggests that Alec Baldwin’s shooting on the set of Rust was what ultimately caused the death of cameraman Halyna Hutchins, contradicting statements made by the actor in the past.

The FBI investigation’s report (which ABC news was able to receive) said that the.45 Long Colt caliber F.lli Pietta single-action revolver that was utilized in the picture could not have been shot with the trigger response. This information was obtained by ABC news. Following what was described in the aforementioned forensic report as “accidental discharge testing” of the F.lli Pietta weapon, the FBI appears to have arrived at their conclusion.

What did the FBI’s forensic testing about the Rust movie shooting reveal?

It would appear from the report that the FBI looked into a number of different possibilities regarding the placement of the hammer on the revolver. According to ABC News, the only thing that could have caused the gun to fire the round when it was in the “quarter and half-cock positions” was the pulling of the trigger.

In a similar fashion, when the hammer was in the fully cocked position, the firearm “could not be induced to fire without a pull of the trigger while the working internal components remained intact and functional.”

The study went on to claim that the firearm was able to explode the primer even when the hammer was in the decocked position. This information was included in the document. In this particular instance, the hammer was the object that took the blow.

Even though the official report from the FBI inquiry states that Alec Baldwin was the one who pulled the trigger on the fake handgun that killed Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust, the actor’s attorneys seem to be denying that the report is accurate.

Alec Baldwin’s previous claims about not pulling the trigger on Rust set

In the beginning of December 2021, the actor Alec Baldwin (64 years old) discussed the tragic event that occurred on the set of Rust. He claimed in an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC that he was not the one who pulled the trigger. Baldwin asserted that

Baldwin’s assertions regarding the sad event that took place on October 21, 2021 and resulted in the death of Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins appear to be in conflict with the findings of a recent study compiled by the FBI.

On the other hand, there has been no evidence to suggest that the FBI conducted the investigation tests using the same handgun that was used on the set of the Rust film. Baldwin’s assertion, in which he asserts that he did not pull the trigger, may or may not be erroneous. If the revolver that was utilized by the FBI was just an identical piece to that which murdered Hutchins, then it is impossible to ascertain if the actual gun malfunctioned while it was being filmed.
