Atlanta rapper Trouble has passed away, the USA Today reports. He was 34-years-old.

His sister confirmed his passing on Saturday night.

According to the reports, Rockdale County Sheriff’s spokesperson Jedidia Canty said that Trouble, whose real name is Mariel Semonte Orr, was discovered lying on the ground after being shot on Sunday at 3:20 a.m. at Lake St. James Apartments in Conyers. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The sheriff’s office said they secured arrest warrants for suspect Jamichael Jones on charges of murder, home invasion, and aggravated assault but he has not yet been apprehended.

The authorities surmised that Trouble was visiting a “female friend” at the complex which turned into a “domestic situation.” Jones knew the woman but did not know Trouble. 

Def Jam, Trouble’s label, expressed their condolences to his family in a post on Instagram.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the children, loved ones, and fans of Trouble,” the post read. “A true voice for his city and an inspiration to the community he proudly represented. RIP Skoob🙏🏾.” 

In 2011, Trouble released his mixtape December 17th. He dropped his album Edgewood that featured Drake, the Weeknd, and Offset of the Migos in 2018.

We offer our prayers and deepest condolences to the family and friends of Trouble.
