Details about the circumstances surrounding the murder of Atlanta rapper Trouble are beginning to trickle out. The accused shooter Jamichael Jones is in police custody after surrendering in a hospital parking lot early Tuesday morning. Now, an arrest warrant obtained by CBS46 Atlanta reporter Tori Cooper is filling in the details many are curious about.
Warrant Reveals Former Relationship Between Trouble’s Friend And Jamichael Jones
The state warrant revealed an investigative conversation with the female friend Trouble was visiting at the time of his death. She is only identified as Ms. Wiliams. As previously reported, Jedidia Canty, Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office’s public information officer, revealed the woman knew Jamichael, but Trouble did not. Therefore, the incident was labeled as “a domestic situation.” Turns out, Jamichael is the ex-boyfriend of Trouble’s female friend.
She told authorities that she ended a three-year romantic relationship with Jamichael “approximately a week ago,” per the warrant. Ms. Williams and Jamicahel “lived together at this residence” prior to the break-up.
The split allegedly took place inside of the woman’s car “somewhere in Clayton County.” Jamichael and Ms. Williams were “arguing with each other about him not having a job and not helping her pay the bills.” During the conversation, Jamichael allegedly punched Ms. Williams in the nose. She reacted by calling 911, but Jamichael left the vehicle and fled the scene. Ms. Williams then also left the scene without filing a police report “because Mr. Jones fled the scene.” She claims she hadn’t seen Jamicheal since that altercation.

On June 5, Jamichael forcibly entered Ms.Williams’ apartment while she and Trouble slept in her bed inside her bedroom. She said her ex-boyfriend woke her up by punching her in the face. Afterward, a fight broke out between Trouble and Jamichael. Ms. Williams said she began “to help” Trouble, but Jamichael pulled out a gun.
As previously reported, public information officer Jedidia shared during a press conference that Trouble was shot once in the chest. Deputies say they found the rapper laying on the floor when they arrived at the apartment.
A preliminary court hearing was set for June 15 by a judge hours after Jamichael surrendered. The suspect will remain behind bars until the next hearing given that the judge denied his bond. The 33-year-old is facing the following charges: felony murder, aggravated assault, battery, and home invasion.
