Chavis Carter was found shot dead in a police car after he was picked up for a warrant and he had drugs on him at the time the cops found him. According to Channel 3 News in Memphis:
Somehow minutes later police say they heard a thumping noised, turned around and found Chavis dead, shot in the head, in the back of the squad car. “Any given officer has missed something on a search, be it drugs, knife, razor blades, this instance it happened to be a gun” said Sergeant Waterworth. They’re still investigating but they think Chavis, somehow managed to pull out a hidden gun and shot himself in the head
Carter’s mother and others think otherwise; the cops killed him. They claim he was not suicidal because he called his girlfriend when the cops found him and said he would call her from the jail. AND THE BIG FACTOR IS her son supposedly shot himself in the right temple — HE’S LEFT HANDED!
The officer who was involved is on leave while the shooting is under investigation.
Sounds suspect to me!
