New York Post journalist, Jon Levine, confronted Alec Baldwin over his latest claims in his first sit-down interview since he accidentally killed Halyna Hutchins.

Baldwin claimed that he didn’t pull the trigger and fire the shot that killed Hutchins, despite police saying he did so.

The encounter, filmed outside Allen’s Upper East Side home on Monday night, December 6, began with 63 year-old Baldwin’s wife Hilaria, 37, scolding the reporter while brandishing her phone’s camera towards him.

‘Mr. Baldwin, I have to ask you, what brings you to New York City,’ asked Jon Levine, sidestepping Baldwin’s wife to film the actor .

‘I asked you to leave,’ Hilaria snapped.

When Levine asked who lived at the property, an umbrella wielding Baldwin turned on his heels and sprang toward the reporter.

‘You’re not allowed to photograph onto someone’s private home,’ Baldwin shouted, gesturing with the umbrella gripped tightly in his hand.

Hilaria held her husband, holding Baldwin back as he repeated the statement before the actor turned back toward the door.

‘This is not… this is public property,’ Levine repeated, regaining his composure.

‘Go away, stop it,’ Hilaria said before Baldwin and his entered back into the home.

‘Did you really not pull the trigger? Do you believe it went off without you pulling the trigger? Was it a malfunction?’ Levine asked from the sidewalk as the door closed.

 

This comes after Baldwin tearfully maintained that he didn’t pull the trigger and that the gun just ‘went off’ while in his hands on the set of the movie in New Mexico on October 21, killing Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.

‘I let go of the hammer, bang. The gun goes off. Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud,’ he said in an interview with ABC.

‘Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who it is, but it’s not me.’

‘She’s getting me to position the gun – everything is at her direction. I draw the gun, to her marker. I’m not shooting to the camera lens, I’m shooting just off. In her direction. This was a completely incidental shot, that may not have ended up in the film.’

Baldwin says he cocked the gun, and was discussing with Hutchins how it looked on camera.

‘I’m just showing. I go, ‘How ’bout that? Does that work? You see that? Do you see that?’  And then she goes, “Yeah, that’s good.”

‘I let go of the hammer, bang. The gun goes off. Everyone is horrified. They’re shocked. It’s loud. They don’t have their earplugs in. 

 ‘No one was – the gun was supposed to be empty. I was told I was handed an empty gun. If they were cosmetic rounds, nothing with a charge at all, a flash round, nothing. 

‘She goes down, I thought to myself, “Did she faint?” The notion that there was a live round in that gun did not dawn on me ’till probably 45 minutes to an hour later.’

He added: ‘Well, she’s laying there and I go, “Did she hit by wadding? Was there a blank?” Sometimes those blank rounds have a wadding inside that packs, it’s like a cloth that packs the gunpowder in. Sometimes wadding comes out, it can hit people, and it could feel like a little bit of a poke.

Baldwin and his wife deleted their Twitter accounts over the weekend as they received huge criticism after the interview with many saying old guns like the one Baldwin used must be pulled by the trigger and hammer before they can shoot.

‘I never pulled the trigger. No, no, no. You would never do that.’
