Shot, robbed and thrown off a building...
 

Earlier this year he was arrested by the FBI, you can find the statement he released at his blog. I'm quoting the article from earlier this year:

 

(AllHipHop News) Malcolm X’s grandson and Muslim civil activist, Malcolm Lateef Shabazz has reportedly been arrested by FBI agents, according to reports from PressTV.

Prior to the arrest, the grandson to the civil rights icon was en route to Tehran, Iran for the third annual Hollywoodism International Conference held on Sunday (February 3rd).  The FBI has refused to release information regarding Shabazz’s current whereabouts and the cause for the apparent arrest. The Hollywoodism International Conference hosts filmmakers, activists and scholars from across the globe to discuss issues facing world cinema and it being used as a vehicle for nationalistic propaganda.

 

Coincidentally, Shabazz’s arrest coincided with the February 2nd premiere of Lifetime original movie Betty & Coretta, which is based on the friendship between Betty Shabazz and Coretta Scott King following their respective husband’s assassination. The movie is steeped in controversy as members of both the King and Shabazz family claim they were not consulted for the film and that there are stark character inaccuracies. Ilyasah Shabazz recently told the Washington Post that her mother (played by R&B legend Mary J. Blige) wasregal, compassionate, strong, loving, beautiful, resilient and well-educated” as opposed to the timid and insecure portrayal in the movie. Even the character’s wardrobe drew the ire of Ilyasah Shabazz as she states her mother never wore a scarf around her face, as portrayed in the movie and traditional for a Muslim, as a sign of independence.

The Washington Post reported that unnamed A&E officials excluded the families from involvement in the movie prior to post-production due to limiting familial bias in the protection of their legacy. A major point of contention for the Shabazz family was the dramatization of Betty Shabazz’s death which resulted from a fire set by her grandson, Malcom Lateef Shabazz. The movie depicted Malcolm X’s dying wife as using her last moments of life to speak to Coretta Scott King, even though the Shabazz families claims she was unable to speak after suffering third-degree burns.

Here is a video of Malcolm Lateef Shabazz explaining the details behind the fatal fire:

Rest in peace to this brother, it seems strange in the wake of the renewed interest in Assata Shakur. Can't call it.

The charges of using campaign funds for personal use, which Jackson has pleaded guilty to, are worse than murder, Chicago resident Gregory Ritter said in a letter to U.S. District Court Judge Robert L. Wilkins.

The grandson of murdered civil rights leader Malcolm X has died after he was beaten up during a dispute over a bar bill in Mexico, a friend has said.

 

Miguel Suarez said he was in a bar with Malcolm Shabazz and several other people when a fight broke out after the owner demanded they pay $1,200.

 

Mr Suarez said he later found his friend injured outside the bar and took him to a hospital where he died.

 

US officials confirmed Mr Shabazz died on Thursday but did not give any other details about his death.

 

The 28-year-old spent much of his life in and out of institutions. He is most widely known for starting a fire at a New York apartment in 1997 that killed his grandmother, Betty Shabazz, who was Malcolm X’s widow.

 

He was aged 12 at that time and was sent to a juvenile detention centre. He was jailed again soon after being released for attempted robbery.

 

He admitted in later interviews that he had joined a gang, but more recently had been writing and speaking about young people's issues.

 

But on his own website and Twitter accounts he complained he was being harassed by the FBI. 

 

His mother is Qubilah Shabazz, the second daughter of Malcolm X and Betty Shabazz.

 

She witnessed the 1965 assassination of her father by gunmen identified as members of the Nation of Islam.

 

 

She was arrested 30 years later over an alleged plot to kill the group's then-leader Louis Farrakhan.
