Malcolm Shabazz, Grandson of Malcolm X, Murdered In Mexico

Malcolm Shabazz, 29, the grandson of Malcolm X (El Hajj Malik El-Shabazz), has died due to injuries suffered in a reported robbery. Developing reports say that Shabazz died Thursday (May 9) morning after allegedly being thrown from a rooftop in Mexico.

The Amsterdam News broke the story after a family friend took to Facebook to confirm the details of Shabazz's murder. Author Terrie M. Williams wrote, “I'm confirming, per US Embassy, on behalf of the family, the tragic death of Malcolm Shabazz, grandson of Malcolm X. Statement from family to come.”

The exact details surrounding the death of Shabazz are still largely unconfirmed, although family members have stated that he was in Mexico at the time of his passing. Earlier reports said he was shot, while other reports trickling in say he was thrown off a roof in Tijuana. His last two posts to facebook: http://imgur.com/DTdk6UZ
