Alec Baldwin will not be charged with shooting the director of Rust.

It was recently revealed that the 64-year-old actor would being charged with involuntary manslaughter over the death of Halyna Hutchins, who died on set of the movie in October 2021.

However, Baldwin will not be charged with the shooting of Joel Souza, despite the fact he was hit by the same bullet that killed cinematographer Hutchins.

The reason being is that there is reportedly ‘no crime’ as far as the shooting of Souza is concerned.

According to the Santa Fe District Attorney’s Office in information obtained by TMZ, the only way to characterise the shooting of Souza is an ‘unintentional battery,’ and no such thing exists.

The outlet adds that a battery requires intent, and the D.A. says Baldwin had no intention to hurt anyone.
