The vigil was held on Haltom Street where Carter was arrested July 29, and where Jonesboro Police claim he shot himself in the head after being searched, handcuffed and placed in the back of the squad car.
A toxicology report also showed he had trace amounts of meth, Oxycodone and marijuana in his system.
"Well Chavis Carter died while in custody," Reverend Jackson said. "He had been searched twice and handcuffed and placed in the police car."
The march ended at Jonesboro Police Department where a sign read "closed."
Benjamin Irwin, attorney for the family, says they are launching an independent investigation after newly released information.
"And now the decision today not to do gun residue test on that young man," he says.
When Theresa Carter was asked it her son would have committed suicide, she simply responded, "No, no."
Jackson says there will be many more marches until justice is served.
