Smith says her uncle was schizophrenic, but refused to take medication despite the family's requests. Officers had been called to calm Carter down multiple times before, but Smith says force was never required. When the deputies arrived on Saturday, Smith says one stayed a distance behind while the other tried to talk to Carter and eventually shot him multiple times. She believes that if both officers had worked together her uncle may still be alive.
