Atherton told ABC the gun was being kept at Carter’s apartment, but was eventually going to be used as a prop in a video.

Carter spent most of his time devoted to his music and could easily be found at the recording studio. “His music was his world. He was always there for everybody,” his mother, Cindy McClellan, said.

Triple Threat Management intends to release the rest of Carter’s recorded music with the proceeds made going to Carter’s family.
