Police Release Video in Arkansas Patrol Car Shooting

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Video recorded the night a young man was fatally shot in a patrol car while his hands were cuffed behind his back hasn’t resolved questions about whether he shot himself in the head as officers said.

Jonesboro police released footage to The Associated Press and other news organizations under a Freedom of Information Act request this week. They released more footage Friday amid questions about why the first batch of video appeared to end before the officers found 21-year-old Chavis Carter slumped over and bleeding in the back of a patrol car as described in a police report.

Police said the second batch of video occurred after Carter was discovered. That video wasn’t immediately available in its entirety.

Carter was fatally shot in the head on July 28.
