    Former Georgia Tech star and ex-NBA player Javaris Crittenton has been indicted on murder and gang activity charges.

    According to WSB TV, Crittenton, an Atlanta native, was indicted today (April 3) by a Fulton County grand jury. Police say Crittenton joined a Los Angeles gang called the Mansfield Gangster Crips after being a first round draft pick of the Los Angeles Lakers.

    He is accused of accidentally shooting and killing an Atlanta mother of four as he was allegedly shooting at a rival gang member.

    Crittenton, 29, was named in a 12-coun indictment that includes charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, giving false statements, and participation in criminal street gang activity.

    Crittenton was named Mr. Georgia Basketball by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution while he played at Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy. He played one season with Georgia Tech before leaving school to turn pro.

    He is currently free on $230,000 bond.
