Ice-T’s grandson, Elyjah Marrow, was arrested after he allegedly shot and killed his roommate.
According to reports, the 19-year-old student was fiddling with a handgun when it accidentally went off in his shared Marietta, Ga., apartment, fatally wounding his roommate Daryus Johnson, 19.
"Marrow was not using proper firearms safety when handling the gun," Police Officer David Baldwin told the Marietta Daily Journal. "That reckless handling of the firearm is what led to Johnson being accidentally shot and eventually killed."
As a result, Marrow has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, possession of firearm in the commission of a felony and reckless conduct since the incident occurred Tuesday afternoon.
Marrow, who appeared on Ice Loves Coco, was also hit with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute and possession of a stolen firearm.
“I’ll give up my gun when everybody else does…if there were guns here, would you want to be the only one without one?” Ice-T, who plays a detective in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, said in the past about gun control.
