The Night of Trouble’s Passing
On June 5th, Trouble was involved in a home invasion and incident that claimed his life. He was in the home of a female companion in the Rockdale County area of Atlanta when her estranged boyfriend charged the property and shot him in the chest. The man was later identified as Jarmichael Jones. Jones had been dating the unidentified woman for some three years before they split a week prior. According to the statement she gave police, they had argued about him not having a job or contributing to her financially. Following the argument, the unidentified woman claims he attacked her, which led to her calling 911. However, she chose not to file a police report because he fled the scene.

Jarmichael Jones turned himself in less than 72 hours later. He reportedly called his mother, who then convinced him to turn himself in. They agreed to meet at a nearby hospital. The Rockdale County Sherriff spoke with news outlets and said, “I don’t believe that he’s expressing any remorse right now, but we can tell based upon his impression and body language that he is feared. I believe that’s some of why he decided to turn himself in.” Jarmichael attended a hearing today which resulted in the judge denying his bond.

Fans have been combing through social media to see if there were any signs of what was to come hidden in plain sight.

He says that women sometimes have several guys they are dating and do not realize that those gentlemen might be friends. While Trouble claimed he did not shame women, he also said he was not above asking a girl to stop if he liked her. “Do do that no more, dead serious. You gotta keep it gangsta with them. And if she can’t stop, just go on about your business, lady.”
