Rapper Ice-T‘s grandson has been indicted in the death of his roommate.

Elyjah Marrow, 20, was arrested in June 2014 after accidentally shooting his roommate, 19-year-old Daryus Johnson, in the chest with a stolen gun, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

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.”

Marrow was indicted on various charges, including involuntary manslaughter, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana more than an ounce, theft by receiving stolen property and possession of firearm during commission of a felony reckless conduct.
