Malcolm X’s human rights activist grandson, Malik Shabazz, was killed in Mexico. It is claimed that Malik Shabazz was a victim of an extortion attempt and was injured in a struggle which led to his death, and was then allegedly thrown off the roof.

While detailed information of the death of 27-year-old Malik Shabazz was not given, a family friend reportedly confirmed the incident to New York Amsterdam News.

On his Twitter account, Shabazz identifies himself as “Grandson, name-sake and first male heir of the greatest revolutionary leader of the 20th century.”

When Shabazz was 12 years old he started a fire in his family’s New York home, which led to the death of Malcolm X's wife Betty Shabazz a few weeks later. Found guilty of the incident, Malik Shabazz spent eight months in a reformatory.

Last year Shabazz was questioned by the FBI while going to a conference in Iran about the Hollywood and the entertainment industry.
