A new discovery has been made in the fatal “Rust” shooting involving Alec Baldwin.
According to ABC News, which obtained a copy of the FBI’s forensic report, the gun used on the New Mexico movie set could not have been fired without the trigger being pulled.
The article goes on to state the following:
The FBI conducted an accidental discharge test and determined the gun used in the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins “could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger,” the report stated, according to the outlet.
In December, Baldwin, who was in possession of the firearm on set that killed Hutchins said, “The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger.”
However, the test showed the gun would not fire without the trigger being pulled.
According to the outlet, When the hammer was in the fully cocked position, the gun “could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger while the working internal components were intact and functional.”
Sante Fe Sheriff’s detectives received the FBI’s forensic report on Aug. 2 and then forwarded it to the New Mexico Office of the Medical Investigator “for review.”
The release read, “The OMI had advised the Sheriff’s Office that they required these forensic reports to finalize their investigation. The sheriff’s office received the “official OMI reports” on Wednesday.”
Alec Baldwin’s phone records are still actively being obtained and processed.
Sheriff Adan Mendoza said, “The District Attorney’s office has been working with Suffolk County PD, and Baldwin’s lawyer to acquire the phone records. Once Suffolk County PD completes its agency assist and sends those records to New Mexico law enforcement, our detectives will need to then thoroughly review those phone records for evidentiary purposes.”
The investigative case will be sent to the district attorney for review and final charging decisions once all phone records are obtained and the forensic report is thoroughly reviewed.
