The FBI concluded in a forensic report that the gun used to kill cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in October 2021 on the set of Alec Baldwin‘s “Rust” film couldn’t have been fired without someone first pulling the trigger.

In the forensic report, obtained by ABC News, the federal law agency said its accidental discharge testing determined the gun used in the shooting — a .45 colt caliber F.lli Pietta single-action revolver — couldn’t have gone off without the trigger being pulled.

The FBI forensic report contradicts what Baldwin told “Good Morning America”‘s George Stephanopoulos back in December 2021 during his first sit-down interview since the fatal onset shooting that also wounded the film’s director, Joel Souza.
