Ice-T’s grandson, Elyjah Marrow, has been arrested following the accidental murder of his roommate.

The 19-year-old was playing around with a handgun in his Georgia apartment on Tuesday afternoon (June 24) when it accidentally fired and hit fellow 19-year-old Daryus Johnson, TMZ reported. Johnson was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, where he was pronounced dead from his injury.

“Marrow was not using proper firearms safety when handling the gun,” Officer David Baldwin said to the Marietta Daily Journal. “That reckless handling of the firearm is what led to Johnson being accidentally shot and eventually killed.”

Marrow is now being charged with involuntary manslaughter, as well as reckless conduct, possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a firearm while committing a felony and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. He is presently being held in the Cobb County jail without bond.

Ice-T has yet to issue a statement on the incident.
