Texas country singer JUSTIN CARTER has died because of an accidental shooting during the filming of a music video. He was 35. The video was being filmed in his apartment and the gun was in his pocket when it went off.
Carter's mother, Cindy McClellan, told Fox News her son was filming a music video in Houston, Texas, on Saturday when a gun in his pocket "went off and caught my son in the corner of his eye."
"He was a wonderful artist," McClellan said. "He was the voice, he was the total package and we're trying to keep his legend [alive]."
Carter leaves behind two young daughters, Dixie and Kaylee.
The family has set up a GoFundMe to help cover funeral costs.
