The actor and his family were driving in Manchester, Vermont when they pulled over to talk to the press. Photographers and reporters had allegedly been relentless in their pursuit of the family, distressing Baldwin’s children.
“We were a very, very well-oiled crew shooting a film together and then this horrible event happened,” he said.
Under police instruction not to share any details on the investigation, Baldwin described the shooting as a “one in a trillion incident”, adding, “An ongoing effort to limit the use of firearms on film sets is something I’m extremely interested in.”
Though there are no further updates on the production of Rust, Baldwin says he “sincerely doubts” filming will ever resume.
