JONESBORO, Ark. — After a month of releasing videos, witness interviews, autopsy reports and investigative summaries about the shooting death of a man handcuffed in the back of a patrol car in Jonesboro, Ark., the police department appears to be wrapping up its case.
Both officers present at the July 28 shooting that ended with 21-year-old Chavis Carter slumped over and bleeding in the back of a squad car are back on the streets, one with a written reprimand.
