The grandson of late civil rights leader Malcolm X had been killed in Mexico, a close family friend said Thursday.
According to media reports, Malcolm Shabazz, 28, was killed during a robbery in Tijuana early Thursday morning.
Terrie M. Williams, a Mount Vernon native who now runs The Terrie Williams Talent Agency in New York City, has worked closely with the Shabazz family and confirmed the man’s death.
“I’m confirming, per the U.S. Embassy, on behalf of the family, the tragic death of Malcolm Shabazz, grandson of Malcolm X,” she wrote on her Facebook and Twitter accounts. “Statement from family to come.”
Reached at her agency, Williams told The Journal News she had worked with Shabazz for a number of years.
“I mentored him and he did a lot of work with us in terms of speaking to young people,” Williams said. “He was a very, very powerful brother.”
Shabazz is perhaps most known for intentionally starting a fire that killed his grandmother Betty Shabazz, 63, in 1997.
Malcolm Shabazz was 12 years old at the time and, after pleading guilty to second-degree arson and second-degree manslaughter, was sentenced to 18 months in a juvenile facility.
In 2002, at the age of 17, he was sentenced to three years in a New York state prison after taking part in a violent street robbery in Middletown.

I had a Shabazz t-shirt that I won off a Sprite cap when I was about twelve.

This is why you need a Merlin.

That's a joke for precious few people, one of them actually being BIV.

Malcolm 12? Malcolm X the second?

And why Merlin, bodyguard?

I don't get jokes.
