American actor Alec Baldwin believes that no one will be criminally charged for the death of 

a person during the filming of the western "Rust" and has hired a 

private detective to investigate the facts, according to statements aired this Friday (19) by broadcaster CNN.

Director of photography Halyna Hutchins was killed last October by gunfire 

from a gun Baldwin was holding while rehearsing on the set of the film in New Mexico.

The criminal investigation into the incident is ongoing 

and prosecutors are not ruling out filing charges against those involved.

"I sincerely believe ... (that investigators) are going to say it was an accident," Baldwin said in one of his rare interviews about the episode.

The actor told CNN that over the past ten months he has recalled the event more than once, and that he had hired a private investigator to look into it.
