Alec Baldwin seen on beach after FBI report on Halyna Hutchins death said he DID pull trigger of gun

Author: Yuvi August 16, 2022


Embattled actor Alec Baldwin was seen going for a leisurely walk in the Hamptons just hours after the FBI released a damning report revealing he did shoot and kill cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his film.

Baldwin, 64, was pictured walking through the dunes along the water on Sunday, wearing a blue bathing suit and an unbuttoned black polo shirt as he carried a blue and red striped towel and what appeared to be a piece of rope.

He looked rather disheveled, with his hair grown out and sporting a scruffy beard as he carried all of his belongings in his right arm, keeping his left arm free to reveal a brown Lokai bracelet.

The movie star seemed to be alone, strolling the beach without his family, as he slipped out of his leather sandals to dig his feet into the sand.

The outing marks the first time the actor has been seen since the FBI released its report concluding he pulled the trigger on a gun on the set of his film ‘Rust’ in October 2021, firing off bullets that killed Halyna Hutchins, 42, and injured director Joel Souza.

Baldwin has not spoken publicly since the revelation, after repeatedly denying that he pulled the trigger on the gun, which was supposed to be loaded with dummy bullets.

Now, police in Santa Fe, New Mexico say they are considering filing criminal charges against him.

The FBI forensic report released Friday examined every aspect of the fatal accident as part of a broader investigation to see if any criminal charges can be brought.

Part of the report found that the revolver, a single-action .45 Colt caliber F.lli Pietta, could not have been fired without someone pulling the trigger, despite Baldwin’s incessant claims.

They made the decision by conducting an accidental discharge test, but it is unclear if this was with the exact same gun or an identical copy, according to ABC News.

It states that the gun, when working properly, will not release a bullet and primer at the same time just by someone fiddling with the hammer as Baldwin has suggested.

The FBI reports were immediately forwarded to the New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator OMI, who then passed them to the Sheriffs Office on Wednesday.

Now, officials say, Baldwin could face criminal charges for the shooting.

Santa Fe authorities have already said they are waiting on the obtaining the actor’s phone records before any charges are brought.

Once they receive those records, detectives will review them, and a case file will be sent to the District Attorney to determine if charges are appropriate.

Baldwin previously claimed that he had pulled back the hammer and posed with it for the camera while Halyna coached him on the positioning.

In interviews with investigators Baldwin said he was told that he was holding a ‘cold gun,’ meaning that it was loaded with dummy rounds.

The actor said that he released it, and it fired without him pulling the trigger, with Baldwin adding ‘I did not pull the trigger.’

He also previously told the sheriff’s that on the day of shooting, a box of dummy bullets that had gone missing suddenly reappeared.

After the accident involving Hutchins, the crew went back to the box and discovered live rounds had been mixed in with the dummy rounds, he said.

Baldwin was adamant that the sheriff’s investigators should question Hannah Gutierrez, the armorer, about the box.

But Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the 24-year-old armorer, has repeatedly issued statements protesting her innocence.

She said she was overworked on set and has filed a lawsuit claiming an ammunition supplier created dangerous conditions by including live ammunition in a box that was supposed to include only dummy rounds.

Baldwin has repeatedly denied he was responsible for the shooting, claiming he was simply pulling back the hammer of the gun and posed with it for the camera while Halyna coached him on the positioning

Police also released several videos of Baldwin being interviewed about the incident, with the footage taken from inside the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office in New Mexico after Baldwin’s prop gun fired a live round during a rehearsal for a scene.

He had just finished telling cops that he didn’t pull the trigger, and was therefore stunned when he saw what looked like a live round fire from his weapon and pierce through director Joel Souza’s shoulder before striking Hutchins in the armpit.

Baldwin also reportedly badgered Sante Feives to grill the crew about the incident and about losing out on work and having to tell his kids about how he accidentally killed Hutchins.

And in the week after the accident, Baldwin phoned Detective Alexandra Hancock to ask if the sheriff had interviewed the film’s armorer about the bullets, and to ask when a press conference was being held.

He was frantic, begging the detective to ‘indulge’ him by asking about the box of bullets that he felt could explain how a live round ended up in his gun.

During the interview he also told the detective about having to tell his eight-year-old daughter Carmen about the tragedy, and how she ‘cried’ afterwards.

Baldwin said he’d been ‘fired’ from the rest of his projects for the year as a result of the accident.

‘I have some unfortunate news. She didn’t make it,’ the investigator told him.

He shot back in his seat, saying: ‘No!’ before asking if he can be excused to phone his wife, Hilaria. Baldwin left the room with his head in his hands.

Seconds later, he was photographed in the parking lot of the sheriff’s office, wailing as he spoke to Hilaria.

Video shows investigators telling the actor that Hutchins, 42, had succumbed to her injuries, with Baldwin instantly saying 'no' as he lurched back into his seat in shock.  Baldwin, 64, is seen raising his hand to his mouth as he looks between the two investigators in stunned silence

The sheriff’s office also released dozens of text messages and emails to and from Dave Halls, the assistant director of the movie.

Those messages show how his friends and confidantes warned him that Baldwin’s ‘PR machine’ was ‘in overdrive’ trying to blame him for the tragedy.

One message, written to Halls by a friend named Julie Burris, said: ‘It looks as though everyone is going for their 15 minutes of fame and AB PR team is in overdrive trying to shift the blame away from himself on a worker bee who doesn’t ‘t have the money or the power to refute any of it.

‘I think you should thoroughly discuss this aspect with your attorney because the most important thing right now is to make sure there aren’t any criminal charges brought against you – AND what the sheriff’s office affadavit [sic] actually says.

‘And then after the fact assess what person(s) and/or news outlets you can sue for libel/slander/defamation.’

No one has been criminally charged over the shooting but Baldwin is being sued by the Hutchins family.

The suit declares that Baldwin and the other producers ‘failed to perform industry standard safety checks and follow basic gun safety rules while using real guns to produce the movie Rust, with fatal consequences.’

Other civil lawsuits have already been filed against the actor and other producers, including one from Mamie Mitchell a script supervisor.

She claims that she was standing just feet away from Baldwin when he fired the gun and was the first to call 911.

Mitchell claims that she suffered pain and ringing in her ears as well as emotional injuries.

In January, Baldwin’s attorneys moved to dismiss the lawsuit because the shooting as a workplace accident.

The films armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed, meanwhile, has filed her own suit saying that an ammunition supplier created dangerous conditions by including live ammunition in a box that was supposed to include only dummy rounds.

And the productions main medic and lead camera operator have also filed a suit for emotional trauma.

New Mexico workplace safety regulators have since issued the maximum possible fine of nearly $137,000 against the ‘Rust’ film production company.

New Mexico´s Occupational Health and Safety Bureau said Rust Movie Productions must pay $136,793, and distributed a scathing narrative of safety failures in violation of standard industry protocols, including testimony that production managers took limited or no action to address two misfires on set prior to the fatal shooting.

The bureau also documented gun safety complaints from crew members that went unheeded and said weapons specialists were not allowed to make decisions about additional safety training.

Rust Movie Productions has indicated it will dispute the findings and sanction.
