Prosecutors will charge actor Alec Baldwin with two counts of involuntary manslaughter after cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed on set in 2021.

At the time he said, “I don’t know what happened on that set. I don’t know how that bullet arrived in that gun.”

The film’s armourer Hanna Gutierrez-Reed will also face charges.
