LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The girlfriend of a man who was fatally shot in the back of an Arkansas patrol car told an investigator that he called her from the car and said he had a gun with him, police said Wednesday.
Jonesboro police released a four-page statement to the media that it said briefly described its investigation to date into the July 28 death of 21-year-old Chavis Carter. The death was ruled a suicide in an autopsy report released earlier this week.

Phone records showed Carter made two calls, at least one of which was from the back of the patrol car, police said.
