He accidentally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and director Joel Souza.

Hutchins succumbed to her injuries at the age of 42 while Souza, 48, survived.

The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s office released the video of the moment Baldwin was told Hutchins had died as well as all their files from the ongoing investigation.

After being informed about Hutchins’ death, Baldwin was excused from the police interrogation room to call his wife, Hilaria Baldwin.

The actor was then pictured outside the police station talking to his wife.

Footage was also shared by the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s department of paramedics helping both Hutchins and Souza.

The 30 Rock star reportedly urged police to investigate claims that a box of dummy bullets went missing from the set only to reappear with live rounds in it.

Baldwin reportedly told Detective Alexandra Hancock: “The point is, I have always maintained that this is an accident of negligence”.

It has been reported that Alec Baldwin was practicing removing the prop gun from its holster and aiming it towards the camera before the fatal accidental shooting.

Souza released a statement at the end of October in which he claimed he heard "what sounded like a whip and then a loud pop" in the final moments of Hutchins' life.

According to Souza, the gun had been identified as 'cold' before being given to Baldwin. This suggests that the crew believed there was no live ammunition inside the gun at the time.

This vital error became clear as the gun discharged, allegedly shooting Hutchins in the chest, and Souza in his right shoulder.
