On Thursday, the prosecutor for Santa Fe County will make an announcement regarding whether or not Alec Baldwin or anybody else will be charged in connection with the shooting incident that resulted in the death of a cinematographer while filming “Rust.”

The announcement made by the prosecutor will take place at 9 am (MT) and 11 am (ET). Baldwin was practicing a movie scene in October 2021 when the event occurred. In the scenario, Baldwin pulls out a handgun and points it at the camera.

The fake gun accidentally discharged, which resulted in the death of the cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, and the injury of the director, Joel Souza. Baldwin has stated that he was not the one to pull the trigger and that he was not informed that the gun was loaded. Will criminal charges be brought against Alec Baldwin or anyone else in connection with the shooting incident that occurred on the set of the film “Rust,” in which a cameraman and director were shot?

According to a stunning allegation, federal investigators are close to reaching the conclusion that actor Alec Baldwin must have been the one who fired the handgun that murdered cameraman Halyna Hutchins while they were filming the movie “Rust.”

ABC News was able to secure a copy of the FBI’s forensic analysis, which stated that the gun that discharged the fatal bullet during the incident that took place on the New Mexico set on October 21 “could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger.”

Baldwin, who starred in and produced the Western movie, said he thought he was holding a “cold gun” with no live bullets when it went off and Hutchins was killed by a real bullet. The director of the movie, Joel Souza, was hurt in the attack.

Baldwin asserted that he did not discharge the firearm during an interview that he gave to George Stephanopoulos of ABC in December of last year.

He claimed that the trigger had not been pushed at any point. “I didn’t pull the trigger,” the speaker said.

Baldwin and Hannah Gutierrez Reed, who was in charge of all weapons on the “Rust” set, could not be reached for comment.

According to the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, which is in charge of the homicide investigation and got the report along with other FBI records linked to the killing earlier this month, ABC News.

This is a developing story that will be updated when more information is available.
