ROCKDALE COUNTY, GA –Jamichael Jones, 33, wanted for the June 5 murder of Atlanta rapper Trouble (Michael Orr), 34, has surrendered.
Jones was arrested in Clayton County. Authorities said Jones turned himself in today around 1 a.m. and was taken into custody by the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Eric Levett said Jones’ mother was instrumental in Jones’ surrender. The mother said her son called her and told her that he wanted to turn himself in peacefully. Jones gave deputies a location to meet with them and was arrested without incident, authorities said.
Jones was charged with Felony Murder, Aggravated Assault, Home Invasion, and Battery.
Jones is accused of fatally shooting Orr, who was visiting a female at the Lake St. James Apartment Complex in Conyers on Sunday, June 5. Deputies responding to the shooting around 3:20 a.m., found Orr lying on the floor inside the apartment—not the ground—as first stated in a news release.
Orr later died from his injuries, investigators said.
Jones made a first appearance in court this morning, Rockdale Sheriff’s spokesman Jedidia Canty said. Jones was denied bond. He is being held in the Rockdale County Jail.
