Alec Baldwin says “everyone” on the set of Last knows “exactly who to blame” for the death of cinematographer Halina Hutchins.

The actor also provided an explanation for how the prop gun that killed the cinematographer in New Mexico last October may have been fired without him pulling the trigger.

This is after a recent FBI report said the trigger must be pulled in order for the weapon to fire.

Speaking on a podcast with US journalist Chris Cuomo, Baldwin spoke of ongoing coverage of the event and said the slow progress of the investigation was “troubling.”

“I know that everyone who was on the set of the movie knows what happened.

Citing US media outlets such as the LA Times and The Hollywood Reporter, he added: there.

“Everybody there knows exactly what happened. They know exactly who is responsible.”

Regarding the investigation, he added:

The FBI report stated that the prop weapon “could only fire when the trigger was pulled,” but Baldwin denied ever firing.

Baldwin said the bullet can be fired without pulling the trigger through a process called “fanning.”

“This didn’t come from me, it came from the Attorney General’s Office itself,” he told Cuomo.

“You have to pull the hammer back and lock the hammer. If you pull the hammer far back, you see someone fanning the hammer of a gun in an old western movie.

“The hammer didn’t lock.

The actor reiterated that the set’s chief safety officer “declared the guns safe when he handed them over.”

Earlier reports of the incident found that the film’s production company “knew firearm safety procedures were not being followed on set” and “displayed a clear disregard for the safety of its employees.”

Rust Movie Productions was fined $136,793, the maximum amount allowed under New Mexico law, after a six-month investigation by the state’s environmental department.

Baldwin continues to fight numerous lawsuits resulting from the incident.

“I’m not a victim here. Things get better for me, things get better for me. I’m 1000 percent confident about that,” he said.

“And nothing will put this woman back together. She died.”
