FOX NEWS - Up-and-coming country singer Justin Carter has died after a gun accidentally fired while he was filming a music video. He was 35. Carters' 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.
McClellan said the family has set up a GoFundMe in order to cover funeral costs as well as to bring Carter's body back from Houston to San Antonio for burial. She said Carter was in the U.S. Army but she is unsure at this time if he meets the qualifications for a military burial.
"He was a wonderful person, very loving and he loved our God very much," McClellan shared. "He had a Bible in his room, in the den, he had one in his truck. He gave to charities."
