Billy Joe Carter, 30, was shot and killed Oct 13 by the U.S. Marshals Arizona WANTED Violent Offender Task Force after he displayed a gun while surrounded by the task force, according to a news release from the Tucson Police Department.



Police responded to call of shots fired at the Circle K at 1395 W. Miracle Mile to find Carter suffering from gunshot trauma. Officers administered Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation but were unsuccessful and Carter died at the scene.

The WANTED Violent Offender Task Force had been tracking down Carter to both apprehend him for a probation violation warrant as well as to help Tucson police. Police were seeking Carter to question him in connection with a missing/endangered child case.

Task force members spotted Carter in the Miracle Mile area and followed him to the Circle K. When Carter stopped at the gas pumps, task force members blocked Carter’s vehicle so he could not flee.

Despite being blocked, Carter still tried to drive out of there, albeit unsuccessfully. That’s when he “displayed a handgun posing a lethal threat” and several task force members “discharged their duty weapons” at him.

None of the task force members or anyone else in the area was injured in the shooting.

Carter was released from prison in June after being sentenced to 6 years for vehicle theft, with a second charge of being a dangerous and repeat offender, according to the Arizona Department of Corrections website. He was admitted to prison in March 2005.

The investigation into his death continues.

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie
I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!! Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue: During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. >>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<< Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. I have done my part. Will you?
