Family remembers Chanett Carter

Local

The city of Ringgold is shocked as an innocent mother is killed by a stray bullet. 

“Innocent woman to just lose her life in front of her kids,” said Wesley Johnson, her childhood friend. “Her brother just walked to the store and to come back to that…. it’s just devastating.” 

Several people were fighting in the parking lot of the Bienville apartment complex on Saturday night when someone started shooting. 31-year old Chanett Carter was sitting on her couch doing homework when she was shot in the back on accident in her apartment. 

Her five-year old child got in contact with Bienville Parish authorities and told them that their mother would not wake up. 

“She was a sweet girl, she ain’t bothered nobody,” her brother said. “Stayed to herself, a humble person.”
