Rapper Ice-T’s grandson has been indicted in the death of his roommate.
The 20-year-old, Elyjah Marrow was arrested last June after accidentally shooting his roommate Daryus Johnson, in the chest.
Daryus, 19-years-old, was shot with a stolen gun. According to People,
Police found Johnson unconscious at Bentley Manor Apartments in Marietta, Georgia, and he was later pronounced dead after being transported to a nearby hospital.
“Marrow was not using proper firearms safety when handling the gun,” Officer David Baldwin told The Marietta Daily Journal at the time. “That reckless handling of the firearm is what led to Johnson being accidentally shot and eventually killed.”
Elyjah has been indicted on multiple charges including, involuntary manslaughter, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, theft by receiving stolen property and possession of firearm during commission of a felony reckless conduct.
It’s truly sad to see a young black man in a situation like this.
