Malcolm Shabazz, the grandson of civil rights icon Malcolm X, has been killed in Mexico according to The Amsterdam
News. He was 28.
Shabazz's death was also confirmed on Twitter and Facebook by Terrie Williams, a friend of the Shabazz family.
Talking Points Memo reported that Shabazz died of injuries sustained during a robbery.
“He was murdered. He was in Mexico City and I believe they attempted to rob him and he didn't allow it, so they beat him to death and he died on his way to the hospital,” Juan Ruiz, a member of the California-based labor organization Rumec, told TPM. “This is all I can confirm, everything else is under investigation for the meantime.”
Shabazz is the son of Qubilah Shabazz, who was the second daughter of Malcolm X and Betty Shabazz.
Shabazz is survived by his mother and two daughters
