At the time of his murder, Ahmaud was only 25-years old, which is only a few years older than Chris' son, who enrolled at Morehouse College in 2017 to study film.

In sharing about his son's college plans at the time, Chris expressed his excitement in having Destin closer to him in Atlanta, he joked, "I think it was a great decision; it was like Morehouse chose us."

It is reported, unlike his movie-star father, Destin wants to work behind the camera as a director and chose Morehouse because of its highly ranked academics.

According to PEOPLE, Destin got his first taste of the entertainment business in 2007, when he starred as an extra in a karate scene for "Rush Hour 3."
