10:24 pm
the community of jonesboro, arkansas is after a 21-year old was shot in the head.....while handcuffed in the back of a police car. car.randi kaye explains why the young man's death is now the focus of an fbi investigation. 3 no one is disputing that chavis carter died from a gunshot to the head while in the back seat of a police car in jonesboro aakansas.. the question is.. who pulled the trigger? police say he committed suicide.quite frankly i've seen some of our people in custody do some amazing thingsbut carter'ss mother doesn't buy it.. she believes jonesboro police killed her son. i think they killed him.. i mean, my son wasn't suicidalat this point -
10:25 pm
it's still debatable. and stiil under investigation. here's why: 21 year old chavis carter was handcuffed fired.. double-locked behind s his back.. is it even physically possible to be handcuffed behind yoorback and somehow pull the trigger on a gun that you weren't even holdingwhen you were handcuffed?to the average personnthat's never been in handcuffs or aroundinmates and people in custody would react the same way you just did.. how is that possible? the fact is it's very possible and quite easy chavis carter and two others were pulled over july 29th, just before 10pm, first officer called for backup ..then the two of them questioned and searched the three men in the truck. when the officers first searched carter, they say they found a small amount of marijuana in his pocket and
10:26 pm
some small plastic bags.. they did not ind a gun. according to the officers, carter was then put in the back seat oo one of the police cars. at this point,,police say he was not handcuffeeit wasn't until officers say they searcheddthe suspecc's vehicle and found drug paraphernalia, like electronii scales and a large bag of white powder that second time. they put him back into the same police vehicle - only this time they say he was carter managed to shoot himself while handcuffed - using a concealed weapon police missed during not one - but two searches -- is a mystery to many, including the fbi who is looking at ittin their searching they find a small bag of marijuana but they miss a gun!!?? that disappointing to you?yes.the chief says the two men with carter, who were white, were released aad left the scene carter was held back after the
10:27 pm
discoveeed e'd given them a faae name and there was a warrant for his arrest in mississippi, where he'd skipped out on a drug diversion program.the chief exactly when the fatal shot was fired, even though they were just feet awaya& according to this incident report, one of the officers heard quote: "a loud thump with a metallic sound" but thought it came from a vehicle that "ran over a piece of metal on the roadway."don't your officers know the sound of a gun being fired?one would think, but when a gun being fired in rear of police car, it could be very very wasn't until the officers were about to leave.. when police say one of them smelled something burning in his vehicle. the chief says it was likely gun smoke. that's when police say the officer found chhvis carter bloodied, and slumped over in the back seat. the officers say they called an ambulance and tried to revive carter. he died at the hospital. carter's mother says it just
10:28 pm
doesn't add up.. she told reporters her son was shot in the right side of the head, but she points out, he was left-handed. police would only say he was shot in the head.theyysearched him twice - i just want to know what really happened.theresa carter says her son called his girlfriend from tte scene to tell her he'd phone herrfrom jail which to her, raises the question -- does that sound like someone planning to commit suicidd?in jonesboro supporters have held vigils. like many, they wonder what motive carter had to kill himself: a $10 bag of marijuana? white powder that hasn't tested pooitive for ddugs and is likely sugar? an outstandinn warrant? we asked the chief about theresa carter's allegations that one of hissofficers pulled the trigger.can you safely say you've ruled that out in your investigation?at this point it's a remote possibility - haven't excluded everything,
10:29 pm
not what it ii, though i understand how she might feel that way.there is video and audio from that night, but the trouble is, the chief says it doesn't show the moment the gun was fired. that's because the two police cars were parked trunk to trunk.. so the dash cam didn't capture carter in the back ssat. police have not released the video but have already reconstructed what happened.. using a duplicate vehicle. they are waiting for the autopsy to be finished to see if what they vissalize happened is consistent with the autopsy results. randi kaye, cnn, 3onesboro aakansas. fox45 will keep you posted on the fbi iivestigation. investigation. for more information on the case, head to our website, fox baltimore dot com and click on the cover stories tab. 3 already
