Alec Baldwin’s shooting incident ruled an accident

The fatal shooting that took the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on a film set in October has been ruled an accident, according to the New Mexico’s Office of the Medical Investigator report.

As most will recall, actor Alec Baldwin was on the set of his movie “Rust” when he was rehearsing a scene involving what was supposed to be a prop gun — but in a tragic turn of events, the firearm was loaded, and when Baldwin allegedly pulled the trigger, the bullet hit Hutchins and subsequently killed her.

While Baldwin previously claimed he did not pull the trigger, an FBI forensic report obtained by ABC News this week stated that the bullet that killed Hutchins could not have been fired without the trigger being pushed, noting that the film’s director Joel Souza had also been left injured in the shooting.
