Black Lives Matter activist kills himself on steps of Ohio Statehouse

Source: AP

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A Black Lives Matter activist killed himself on the steps of the Ohio Statehouse Monday night, authorities said.

MarShawn McCarrel, 23, of Franklin Township, a Columbus suburb, shot himself in front of the Statehouse Monday evening, Lt. Craig Cvetan of the State Highway Patrol told the Columbus Dispatch.

Cvetan told The Associated Press it's unclear why McCarrel killed himself. Authorities say nobody saw the shooting, but McCarrel was seen on Statehouse grounds just before the gunshot. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

"My demons won today. I'm sorry," the activist posted on his Facebook page about 3 p.m. Monday, just hours before his body was found near the Statehouse.

8. Devastingly sad..omg. 23 years old! If you don't open the link you won't see this:

The legacy of a very young man.

He also founded youth mentorship program Pursuing Our Dreams, which launched Feed the Streets, a project to help Ohio's homeless. He attended the NAACP's Image Awards on Friday, Pursuing Our Dreams wrote on its Facebook page.

12. That sounds like he was overly politized

 

Yes there is a war on black males. However this is not the answer. Not for our attention or to make a point. This is a tragic waste of a life.

I'm not going to put out a candle for this guy that clearly needed mental help. The candle would be like standing for his cause. I do stand with Black Lives Matter but NOT when it comes to political suicides.

Rip disturbed one. I'm sorry you didn't get the mental healthcare you needed.
