“The misfires on the set, the way the gun was delivered to him, (Baldwin) has experience.

He understands what the proper protocol for security is, and he just ignored it, ”said special prosecutor Andrea Reeb a week ago.

There is probable cause that Baldwin "committed manslaughter" in an "unlawful act" with his negligent use "of a deadly weapon," special investigator Robert Shilling wrote in a complaint.

Shilling said that after reviewing the film's script and conducting a series of interviews, he found that the scene did not require the gun to be fired.
