Baldwin was initially charged with involuntary manslaughter in the October 2021 for the death of the cinematographer but the charge was dropped.
The star has consistently denied that he pulled the trigger of a gun that went off on set of the film Rust, striking and killing Hutchins, 42.
Despite his denial, however, the forensic report released Tuesday found that his Colt .45 revolver would only fire if the trigger was pulled.

The initial manslaughter charges against the 65-year-old A-lister were dismissed in April of this year, the defense noting that the gun had been modified.
This raised doubts about whether it was working properly at the time of the shooting.
At the time of the dismissal, the special prosecutors said that the “decision does not absolve Mr. Baldwin of criminal culpability and charges may be refiled.”
