Alec Baldwin spoke for the first time on camera since last week’s deadly shooting on the set of the film “Rust.”

Baldwin, 63, snapped to reporters in Vermont where he said he is cooperating with police and has been speaking to them every day. Baldwin maintained that he could not speak on the active investigation.

The actor discharged the antique revolver during a dress rehearsal for the Western, killing the film’s cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, and wounding its director, Joel Souza.

Ever since the fatal incident happens, Baldwin and his family have tried to lay low – until reporters caught them on guard. Baldwin and his wife Hilaria spoke to reporters who intercepted them in Manchester, Vermont.

A portion of Baldwin and Reporters’ Conversation (see video below):

“Let’s go, what do you want to know?” Baldwin asked.

“Alright, Alec, what’s the current state of what’s going on with the case?” a reporter asked.

“I’m not allowed to make any comments because it’s an ongoing investigation,” Baldwin fired back. “I’ve been ordered by the sheriff’s department in Santa Fe. I can’t answer any questions about the investigation. I can’t. It’s an active investigation in terms of a woman who died, she was my friend. She was my friend.”

“The day I arrived in Santa Fe to start shooting, I took her to dinner with Joel, the director,” Baldwin said.

Baldwin noted that he’s spoken to Hutchins’ husband, Matthew, saying, “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,” Baldwin said. “He’s in shock. He has a 9-year-old son. We are in constant contact with them, because we’re very worried about his family, his kid.”

At that moment, Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, walked up to him appearing to shake her head in an effort to get him to stop talking to the media, at which point Baldwin, appearing agitated, dismissed her, saying, “Excuse me.”

Hilaria snapped at the reporter when they forgot the name of the victim, saying, “Halyna. Her name is Halyna. If you’re spending this much time waiting for us, you should know her name. Her name is Halyna.”

Hilaria once again interjected when her husband was asked a question, to which Alec Baldwin had to motion to her that he, not she, was going to answer the questions.

“I do know that an ongoing effort to limit the use of firearms on film sets is something I’m extremely interested in,” he said, later adding that he was not an expert on firearms.

Alec and Hilaria said that they stopped to talk to the reporters because the reporters were following them around and their children were crying in the car. They asked that the reporters stop following them and to give them privacy.
