The teenage grandson of Ice T faces charges of involuntary manslaughter after his roommate was shot dead in what appears to be an accident at their apartment in Georgia.

Elyjah Marrow, 19, is accused of killing Daryus Johnson, also 19, after a gun accidentally went off according to TMZ.

Marrow is being held in Cobb County jail and also faces charges of marijuana possession and possession of a stolen firearm. Police officer David Baldwin said: "Marrow's reckless handling of the firearm is what led to Johnson being accidentally shot and killed."

The son of Ice T's daughter LeTesha, Marrow regularly featured in Ice And Coco, the 2011 reality TV show Ice Loves Coco featuring Ice T and his new wife, model Coco Austin.

Real name Tracy Marrow, Ice T released influential albums 'OG: Original Gangster' and 'Home Invasion', but now focuses on acting. He has played Detective Odafin Tutuola in Law And Order: Special Victims Unit since 2000 and released his most recent solo album 'Gangsta Rap' in 2006.
