Actor Alec Baldwin told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos while he is sad over accidentally killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on a movie set with a prop gun, he does not have any guilt over the incident because he is not responsible.
"No. No. I feel that someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me," Baldwin said.
"What do we come out of this learning? What changes can be made? This is a one-in-a-billion that someone puts a real bullet in a gun and that never happens," Baldwin added. He wants the official investigation to find out who brought real bullets onto the set.

Before the full interview aired on Thursday, ABC News released a teaser where Baldwin said he did not pull the trigger on the revolver but the gun went off anyway. Gun experts say that excuse is highly unlikely.
