Following the shooting of Halyna Hutchins, the FBI released its Rust investigation’s conclusions.

Baldwin’s account does not completely align with the report’s findings.

The findings of a recent FBI inquiry into the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, who was shot by actor Alec Baldwin on the set of the film Rust, have been made public, and it appears that the findings tell a different version of events than what was previously believed to have occurred.

According to the “forensic testing” report that was published on Friday and that ABC News has now seen, the gun that was used in the event “could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger.” Baldwin claims that he did not pull the trigger at any point throughout the incident.

He has also stated in the past that he was given the assurance that the firearm was merely a prop or a “cold gun,” which is a gun that does not have any ammunition inside of it.

The tragic death of the 42-year-old man took place later in the hospital, and director Joel Souza also required medical attention after being hurt in the incident that took place in October 2021.

The FBI went on to verify that the firearm, which was an F.lli Pietta single-action revolver with a.45 Long Colt caliber, was operational by stating that the “internal components were intact and functional.”

In a conversation with the publication back in December, just a few short months after the incident, the 64-year-old man insisted that he was not at fault “the trigger wasn’t pulled,” and that he would “never point a gun at anyone and pull a trigger at them.” He also said that he wouldn’t do that in the future. Never.”

The fact that the hammer was found to be in both the quarter-cocked and the half-cocked positions led the FBI to conclude that the handgun “could not be forced to fire” without someone pulling the trigger in an extremely methodical manner.

They also detailed what caused the gun to go off, stating that with the hammer de-cocked on a loaded chamber, the gun was able to detonate a primer “without a pull of the trigger when the hammer was struck directly,” which is also said to be normal for this particular type of revolver.

Additionally, they stated that the gun was able to detonate a primer “without a pull of the trigger when the hammer was struck directly.”

ABC reports that the results of the postmortem have verified that Hutchins’ death was an accident and that it was “caused by a gunshot wound of the chest.”

It is now being reported that law enforcement officials are waiting for permission to examine through Baldwin’s phone records.
