Elyjah Marrow, the grandson of popular rapper and actor Ice T, has been arrested. The arrest reportedly follows an incident where a gun accidently went off, killing his roommate. He has reportedly been charged with involuntary manslaughter and possession of a firearm.
According to a report by TMZ, the gun accidentally went off when Ice T's grandson was playing around with a loaded gun in his Georgia apartment. The bullet hit his roommate Daryus Johnson. Both the boys are said to be 19 years old.

Marrow is currently in custody and is being held in the Cobb County Jail. His father has reportedly expressed his shock and disbelief at the news. So far there has been no statement from Ice T. The boy featured regularly on his grandfather's TV reality show, "Ice Loves Coco."
