In an interview with ABC, he said that just before the fatal shooting, actor Alec Baldwin recalled being told that “the gun was empty.”
Baldwin said that he recalled the director of photography Halyna Hutchins (Halyna Hutchins) telling him to stick the gun in her direction, “right under her armpit.”
“I said to her,’In this scene, I’m going to raise the gun, do you want to see it?'” Baldwin said.
Baldwin said that Hutchins asked him to load the gun, he said.
“I released the hammer and the gun went off,” Baldwin told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “I have never pulled the trigger.”
