The FBI is now planning to monitor the investigation into the death of 21yr old Chavis Carter of Jonesboro, Arkansas who was shot and killed while handcuffed in the back of a police car.
Chavis Carter was a passenger in a pick-up truck that was pulled over by police on Saturday night. After marijuana was found during the search of the vehicle, Chavis information was ran and it came back that he had an outstanding warrant in Mississippi.
According to sources,
The police then placed Chavis Carter under arrest. They searched him for drugs and weapons, then handcuffed him and placed him in the back of the squad car. Moments later, police said they heard a thumping noise, turned around and found Chavis shot in the head. Sgt. Lyle Waterworth said he thinks Carter pulled out a hidden gun and shot himself.
“Any given officer has missed something on a search, you know, be it drugs, be it knives, be it razor blades,” he said. “This instance, it happened to be a gun.”
However, Chavis mother, Teresa Carter, disagrees.
“I think they killed him,” she said. “My son wasn’t suicidal.”
Carter said she was also told her son was shot in the right temple, although he was left-handed.
“I mean, I just want to know what really happened,” she told WREG-TV. “That’s all I want to know.”
The two officers who were present when Carter was found shot were placed on administrative leave. What are your thoughts ?? Do you really think Chavis Carter shot and killed himself while handcuffed?? #AbsolutelyNot They’re gonna need to show some proof on this one!!
