Activist MarShawn M. McCarrel kills himself at Ohio state house!
MarShawn M. McCarrel
I don't know why he has done this,but it sure looks like a wasted life,especially one that promised so much.
Yesterday, MarShawn M. McCarrel II, 23, shot himself outside the front door of the Statehouse and died at the scene. McCarrel helped organize protests in Ohio after a Missouri cop shot and killed unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in 2014. He also worked with Black Lives Matter. It's unclear why McCarrel killed himself. "My demons won today. I'm sorry," he posted to his Facebook hours before shooting himself. Also, his last tweet read: "Let the record show that I pissed on the state house before I left."
McCarrel also founded an organization called Pursuing Our Dreams, which launched Feed the Streets, a project to help feed and nurture Ohio's homeless population. He attended the NAACP’s Image Awards on Friday. Earlier this year, he was named one of Radio One’s Hometown Champions for his community activism.
