Rising American country singer, Justin Carter, has accidentally killed himself while filming a music video.
The 35-year-old Texan was shooting a music video at his apartment in Houston on Saturday when a real gun was mistaken for a prop.
According to reports, Carter shot himself with a gun meant for the video shoot of one of his records.
The 35-year-old rising star reportedly passed from the gunshot wound which occurred while he was filming in his apartment.
Cindy McClellan, Cater’s mom speaking on the freak accident said a gun the singer had in his pocket “went off and caught my son in the corner of his eye.”
Speaking with ABC 13, McClellan said:
‘His music was his world. He was always there for everybody.’
He signed a new deal with Mark Atherton of Triple Threat Management days before his death. He now plans to release all the music Carter has recorded and hand over the proceeds from sales to his family.
A fund for funeral expenses has also been set up, according to Taste of Country.
