This weekend, Atlanta Rapper Trouble was murdered during a domestic violence-related home invasion. 33-year-old Jamichael Jones was identified as the alleged gunman in the dispute. Jones reportedly pushed his way into the home of a woman he was formerly involved with, which is where he found her with Trouble. He reportedly shot the rapper once in the chest and left. When police arrived, Jones had already left the scene, but they were able to identify him and begin a manhunt.

Jones chose a hospital in Clayton County at 1 a.m.
Now that he is in custody, Jones is currently facing charges for home invasion, felony murder, and aggravated assault. While police have painted a timeline of events, eventually, he will have his day in court to tell his side of the story. Police have revealed that he could face more charges in the future.
