It seems that a real-life criminal drama has entered Ice T's life as the rapper/actor's grandson was arrested in the fatal shooting of a roommate earlier this week.
According to police, 19-year-old Elyjah Marrow accidentally shot his roommate Daryus Johnson, also 19, while tinkering with a handgun Tuesday afternoon in their shared apartment in Marietta, Ga. Johnson was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
"Marrow was not using proper firearms safety when handling the gun," Marietta Police Officer David Baldwin said in a statement. "That reckless handling of the firearm is what led to Johnson being accidentally shot and eventually killed."
Marrow was charged with involuntary manslaughter, possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, and possession of a stolen firearm.
