"I can't comment on the investigation in any way. It was the order of the sheriff's office. She was my friend. Before the shooting began, on the day when I arrived in Santa Fe, I invited her and director Joel Souza for a dinner. We were a very coordinated team. And such a horrible tragedy occurred", he said.

The actor also said he met with Halyna's husband and her 9-year-old son.
