Fast Rising American country musician, Justin Carter, has killed himself accidentally while doing a music video.
The 35-year-old Texan was shooting a music video at his home in Houston on Saturday when he mistook a real gun for a prop.
According to reports, Carter shot himself with a gun meant to be used for a video shoot of one of his records.
He reportedly passed out from the gunshot wound which happened while he was filming in his home.
Cindy McClellan, Carter’s mother while talking about the freak accident, said a gun in the singer‘s pocket went off and caught him around the eye.
He just signed a new deal with Mark Atherton of Triple Threat Management some days before he died. The record label now plans to release all the music Carter has recorded and give the proceeds from the sales to his family.
Money meant for his funeral has already been arranged, according to Taste of Country.
