Alec Baldwin shooting: Actor says he does not feel guilt over film-set shooting of Halyna Hutchins - as 'someone is responsible... I know it's not me'

·1-min read

Alec Baldwin has said he does not feel guilt over the fatal film-set shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins - and that there is "only one question to be resolved - where did the live round come from?"

Speaking in his first interview since the gun he was holding fired and killed Ms Hutchins on the set of the Western Rust in October, Baldwin told Good Morning America host George Stephanopoulos that the question of how the bullet came to be on set is the one that needs to be answered.

When asked if he felt guilt over the cinematographer's death, the actor and producer, 63, said: "No. No. I feel that... someone is responsible for what happened and I can't say who that is, but I know it's not me. Honest to God, if I felt that I was responsible, I might've killed myself if I thought that I was responsible. And I don't say that lightly."

Baldwin said he had decided to speak out as the criminal investigations and civil lawsuits surrounding the shooting in New Mexico would take a long time, and he wanted to make his account known.

He said he wanted to make it clear that "I would go to any lengths to undo what happened" and that he did not want to come across as a victim.

As seen in a trailer of the interview, released earlier in the week, Baldwin also told Stephanopoulos that he never pulled the trigger of the prop gun, but that it went off when he released the hammer.
