Ice-T‘s grandson is at the center of a story all too familiar on the ‘Law & Order: SVU’ set. Elyjah Marrow, 19, accidentally shot and killed his roommate, Daryus Johnson, in an apartment they shared in Marietta, Ga., earlier this week.

On Tuesday (June 24), Marrow, who previously appeared on Ice-T’s reality television series, ‘Ice Loves Coco,’ was apparently playing around with a handgun when it went off and a bullet struck Johnson, TMZ reports. He was transported to the WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Georgia, where he was later pronounced dead.

As a result of Marrow’s actions, he was charged with involuntary manslaughter. In addition, he faces possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of a stolen firearm, possession of firearm in the commission of a felony and reckless conduct charges.

“Marrow was not using proper firearms safety when handling the gun,” 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.”

He is currently being held in the Cobb County jail without bond.

Ice-T has not issued a statement about the incident yet.
