ALAMOHEIGHTS -- Records obtained by KENS 5 Tuesday from the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement shows University of the Incarnate Word police officer Chris Carter had nine law enforcement jobs with eight different agencies from September 2004 to May 2011.

Carter shot and killed UIW senior Cameron Redus following a traffic stop outside the student's apartment north of campus early Friday morning.

Redus was unarmed, but according to investigators with the Alamo Heights Police Department, he grabbed Carter's baton and used it to strike the officer in the head and arm.

Prior to being hired by UIW, records indicate Carter did not stay at any of the previous departments longer than 18 months.

His tenure with the City of San Antonio Marshal's Division lasted just five months.

A marshal supervisor told the I-Team Tuesday Carter was a bailiff and was not permitted to carry a weapon.

The supervisor could not recall why Carter left in April 2009.

Records indicate Carter landed as a peace officer with the Mathis Police Department eight days after leaving the marshal's office.

Carter's prior law enforcement employment included two stints with the Bexar County Sheriff's Office.

Neither stint lasted longer than seven months.

A BCSO spokeswoman said Tuesday the office was still working to confirm Carter's responsibilities while with the agency.

According to TCOLE, Carter also spent time with the George West Police Department, Atascosa County Sheriff's Office, Cibolo Police Department and Marion Police Department.

Atascosa County Sheriff David Soward told the I-Team Tuesday Carter left the sheriff's office in September 2007 without giving a clear indication why.

Carter did not have a disciplinary history with any of the agencies the I-Team spoke with.
