A couple of days after the rapper Trouble was killed in a home invasion Tuesday, the man who allegedly shot him has surrendered to police in Rockdale County.

Trouble, born Mariel Semonte Orr, was shot early on Sunday when the suspect, Jamichael Jones, forced his way into the apartment of a woman Orr was visiting and shot him in the chest.

According to Sheriff Eric Levett, investigators reached out to people who may know the suspect on Monday and were able to make contact with Jones’ mother. She put him in touch with a sergeant that managed to “convince Mr. Jones to turn himself in.”

Jones arranged to meet officers near the Southern Regional Medical Center in Clayton County, and he was arrested at that location without incident. He faces charges for murder, aggravated assault, battery and home invasion.

Trouble, who was also known as Scoob, was well-liked in the local Atlanta scene and secured huge features on his projects including Lupe Fiasco, Wacka Flocka Flame and Drake.
