Outside his Vermont house, he and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin stopped to answer some questions. During the talk, Alec Baldwin revealed that he is fully cooperating with the police and talking to them every day. Furthermore, he said:

“I’m not allowed to make any comments because it’s an ongoing investigation. I’ve been ordered by the sheriff’s department in Santa Fe. I can’t answer any questions about the investigation. I can’t.”

Similarly, Alec Baldwin claimed that he was friends with Halyna Hutchins and took her to dinner with Joel Souza on the first night of the shoot. He also said:

“We were a very, very, you know, well-oiled crew shooting a film together, and then this horrible event happened.”

While talking about Hutchins’ family, he said:

“I wouldn’t know how to characterize it. The guy is overwhelmed with grief. There are incidental accidents on film sets from time to time, but nothing like this. This is a one-in-a-trillion episode, it’s a one-in-a-trillion event. And so he is in shock.”

At one point Hilaria intervened when a reporter forgot Hutchins name. She snapped at him and reminded him of her name. However, Alec Baldwin asked her to stay quiet. So far, the investigation is still under-going and no decision has been taken. Only time will tell Alec Baldwin’s fate.
