A 33-year-old Georgia man wanted by law enforcement in the shooting death of Atlanta rapper “Trouble” turned himself into police in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Jamichael Jones surrendered to police after deputies reportedly contacted his mother. He was denied bail and is facing charges of felony murder, aggravated assault, home invasion, and battery.
Trouble, whose real name is Mariel Orr, was shot around 3:00 a.m. on Sunday morning at an apartment complex in Conyers, Georgia, about 20 miles east of Atlanta.
Jones had arrived at the apartment to find Orr in his ex-girlfriend’s bed, according to a warrant. He started punching his ex-girlfriend in the face then got into an altercation with Orr before fatally shooting him in the chest and fleeing, the warrant says.
Rockdale County Sheriff Eric Levette said that Jones called his mother while deputies were visiting her house looking for him.
“The mother turned the son onto one of my sergeants, who began to talk to him and convince Mr. Jones to turn himself in,” Levette said, according to Fox 5 Atlanta. “His mother was a huge resource in helping us apprehend him.”

Orr debuted in 2011 and collaborated with Drake, The Weeknd, and other artists.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the children, loved ones, and fans of Trouble,” his label, Dej Jam, said on Sunday. “A true voice for his city and an inspiration to the community he proudly represented.”
