'Rust' Armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed Questions Sheriff's Investigation Into Fatal On-Set Shooting
Rust shooting. Through her lawyer, Jason Bowles, the armorer told ET in a statement that she has «long sought this answer and will not give up in pursuing the truth to find it.»During the October on-set incident, Alec Baldwin held the gun that discharged, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.«The primary question in this case from the beginning has been where did the live rounds that ended up on the set come from?» the statement read, before claiming that «the Sheriff’s office made a conscious decision not to pursue this question at all by refusing to ask the FBI to test any of the rounds for fingerprints or DNA.»In addition to the statement, Guitierrez-Reed's attorney provided emails that he says were between him and Detective Alexandria Hancock of the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office.In the emails, Bowles questioned why the FBI didn't pursue DNA testing on the rounds, he claims Hancock replied that «given the fact the items were from movie sets, which had been handled over and over and over, it didn’t make sense» to do so.Bowles asked follow-up questions in subsequent emails, though he claims Hancock wrote back «we are done with testing at this time.»«I’ve never heard of an agency declining to pursue DNA evidence on the possible murder instrument or weapon,» Bowles wrote in the final email he provided to ET.

Alec Baldwin's Lawyer Responds to FBI Forensic Report Concluding He May Have Pulled Trigger in 'Rust' Shooting
Halyna Hutchins in October 2021 on the set of Alec Baldwin's  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 report stated that, even with the hammer in the quarter-and half-cock positions, the gun «could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger.» And, with the hammer fully cocked, the gun «could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger while the working internal components were intact and functional.» Furthermore, 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 the report stated as normal for this type of revolver.On Monday, Baldwin's attorney, Luke Nikas, addressed the forensic report's findings in a statement to ET. «The critical report is the one from the medical examiner, who concluded that this was a tragic accident. This is the third time the New Mexico authorities have found that Alec Baldwin had no authority or knowledge of the allegedly unsafe conditions on the set, that he was told by the person in charge of safety on the set that the gun was 'cold,' and believed the gun was safe,» Nikas said.

I didn't pull the trigger,» Baldwin said during the interview.When Stephanopoulos clarified, «So you never pulled the trigger?,» Baldwin responded, «No, no, no.
