Pregnant 16-year-old girl, unborn child killed by teen in Pulaski shooting


The Pulaski Police Department arrested an 18-year-old man accused of shooting and killing a pregnant 16-year-old girl this week.

Officers arrested Colton Perryman for the Monday night shooting of Samantha Carter. Both Carter and her unborn child were killed in the shooting.

According to police, Carter was shot and killed at the Richland Inn where Perryman was staying. Police confirmed the 18-year-old was out on probation and staying with his family, who was displaced by a recent home fire.

Pulaski officers are still working to determine a motive for the shooting.

Perryman is facing charges including second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, and tampering with evidence.

Police said more charges will likely be filed against Perryman this week.
