Medical Examiner Rules Alec Baldwin Shooting An ‘Accident’

At a glance

  • A top government medical examiner has ruled that actor Alec Baldwin’s fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins late last year was an accident.
  • The determination, which was made by New Mexico’s Office of the Medical Investigator, was released Monday by the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office and comes after news reports broke over the weekend about the results of an FBI analysis on the firearm that was used.
  • Baldwin attorney Luke Nikas responded to the latest development in a statement: “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.”
