a new ordeal for a new ordeal for the city of waukesha, wisconsin. an apartment building was abruptly evacuated after it was found to be in danger of collapsing. police gave people as little as ten minutes to get out. in his first tv interview about the fatal shooting on the movie set of "rust", alec baldwin said if he felt he might be responsible he might have killed himself. >> he spoke with george stephanopoulos. >> that day i did exactly what i've done every day on that movie. >> baldwin was preparing for one of his biggest scenes, a shootout inside this wooden church. >> i'm handed a gun and someone declared, this is a cold gun. in my ears, a hot gun meant there was a charge in there, and cold meant there was nothing in there. when he's saying this is a cold gun, what he's saying is you can relax. the gun is empty. >> that's what cold gun means.
>> cold gun means there's no charge, there may be dummy rounds. >> a dummy round is completely inert, containing no explosive charge. baldwin, director joel souza and halyna hutchins were rehearsing the scene. >> i'm holding the gun where she told me to hold it, which was right below her armpit, that's what i was told. i don't know. this was a completely incidental scene. it was an angle that may not have ended in the film at all. and i cock the gun, and i go, can you see that, can you see that, can you see that, and she says -- and i let go of the hammer and the gun goes off. i let go of the hammer and the gun goes off. >> at that moment. >> that was the moment the gun goes off. >> it wasn't in the script for the trigger to be pulled. >> well, the trigger wasn't pulled. i didn't pull the trigger. >> so you never pulled the trigger. >> no, no, no, no, no. i would never point a gun and pull a trigger at someone. that was the training i had. you don't point a gun at someone and pull the trigger. >> and hall was watching and
agrees that alec did not pull the trigger and that his finger was outside the trigger guard. >> 911, what's the location of your emergency? >> the gun was supposed to be empty. i was told i was handed an empty gun, there were cosmetic rounds, nothing with a flash at all, nothing with a charge at all. she goes down. i thought to myself, did she faint? was there a blank -- sometimes those blank rounds have a wadding inside that packs the gunpowder. and the idea that someone put a live bullet in the gun was not even in reality. >> director joel souza is also wounded. his shoulder hit by the same bullet that traveled through halyna. in the aftermath of the shooting, authorities are investigating how live rounds made it onto the new mexico set. baldwin says he placed his trust in hannah gutierrez reid. according to a search warrant executed this week, she told investigators she loaded five
dummy rounds before lunch and six after when a gun was retrieved from a safe. her attorney says she has no idea where the live rounds came from. he raised the possibility that someone may have deliberately mixed live rounds in a box of dummies in an act of sabotage. >> her attorney has said he believes the set was sabotaged. do you believe the set was sabotaged? >> no, because i can't imagine how that would have been effected. i don't know how someone would have done that. >> the santa fey district attorney leading the investigation has said she does not believe sabotage is a possibility. >> i know some have come up with conspiracy theories and have used the word sabotage. we do not have any proof. >> when the dust settled, halyna hutchins, just 42 years old, lost her life. >> she was someone who was beloved by everyone who worked with her, and admired. sorry. but admired by everybody who
worked with her. >> in the month and a half since hutchins' tragic death on the set of "rust", baldwin says his life has become a recurring nightmare. do you feel guilt? >> no. no. i feel that there is -- i feel that -- that someone is responsible for what happened, and i can't say who that is. but i know it's not me. honest to god, if i felt that i was responsible, i might have killed myself if i thought i was responsible. i don't say that lightly. >> baldwin now awaiting the outcome of the sheriff's investigation, hoping that whatever it uncovers ensures that a tragedy like this never happens again. >> our thanks there to george stephanopoulos. and two crew members are filing a civil lawsuit against the production company including alec baldwin for what they say were persistent unsafe working conditions.
>> obviously this interview is shedding new light, giving new details on what happened that day. but the investigation is looking into, again, for example, if the trigger was pulled. if -- who loaded that live round, how the live round even made it onto the set. there's a lot of elements still being looked at. >> that investigation still ongoing. coming up, the emergency landing overnight, with passengers taken away on stretchers. plus the battle over a christmas vacation-themed light display. you're watching "world news now." christmas vacation-themed light display. you're watchin
