Trouble Killed During Home Invasion Shooting

More details about Trouble’s death are emerging.

The Atlanta rapper, whose real name is Mariel Semonte Orr, was shot and killed during a house raid at Lake St. James Apartments in Conyers, about 25 miles east of Atlanta, early Sunday, June 5, according to a spokesperson for the Rockdale County Sheriff’s office.

Jamichael Jones of Atlanta was named as the suspect. According to NBC News, police issued arrest warrants for the 33-year-old man on charges of murder, home occupation and aggravated assault.

Jones was involved in a “domestic situation” with the woman Trouble was visiting, and she and Trouble didn’t know each other. Jones apparently violated the woman’s home and opened fire, once hitting Belaya in the chest. He was pronounced dead at the scene.


Trouble Knew Nothing

Jones, the suspect, was involved in a “domestic situation” with the woman Trouble was visiting, and he and Trouble did not know each other, Canty said.

Jones apparently breached the woman’s residence and opened fire, striking Trouble in the chest once, Canty said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The woman, who was not identified, was not described as injured.

As fans used social media to grieve and express anger over Trouble’s death, Canty said, “I know there are a lot of people that are really upset right now.”

Canty said deputies were looking at all the suspect’s known haunts in an attempt to take him in to custody.

Trouble continued to release mix tapes through 2017 before he explored the traditional album format. His last two long players, “Edgewood” and “Thug Luv,” were released by labels under Universal Music Group, including Def Jam and Ear Drummer/Interscope.

Los Angeles hip-hop journalist Jeff Weiss tweeted that Trouble “rapped like a 7-foot Terminator — an invincible force of nature — but with an emotional streak, artful videos, and agile cadences that offered perfect balance.”

“Some of the hardest street rap ever made,” Weiss said. “Real is rare.”
