Alec Baldwin tells George Stephanopoulos of ABC News that he “didn’t pull the trigger” on the gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust” in October.

According to his attorney, Lisa Torraco, assistant director Dave Halls has always maintained that Baldwin’s “finger was never in the trigger guard” when their cinematographer was killed on the New Mexico set on Oct. 21.

“Dave has told me since the very first day I met him that Alec did not pull that trigger,” Torraco insisted in the interview on “Good Morning America” Thursday.

“The entire time, Baldwin had his finger outside the trigger guard, parallel to the barrel. [Halls] told me since day one that he thought it was a misfire,” Torraco said.

“It was a pure accident — freak, awful accident [that] unfortunately killed somebody.”
