According to police, 19-year-old Marrow was fiddling with a handgun in his Georgia apartment Tuesday when it accidentally went off, fatally wounding roommate Daryus Johnson, who was also 19.

Daryuis Johnson was first transported to nearby WellStar Kennestone Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Marietta Police Officer David Baldwin told reporters;

"Marrow was not using proper firearms safety when handling the gun. That reckless handling of the firearm is what led to Johnson being accidentally shot and eventually killed."

He is currently in custody. And so far, there's been no comment from Ice-T.
