No arrests have been made, but a warrant was issued for a man named Jamichael Jones. The 33-year-old is wanted “on charges of felony murder, aggravated assault, and home invasion.”

It is reported that Jones forced entry into the residence that Orr and the unnamed woman were in and shot the “Ain’t My Fault” emcee. During a press conference, Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Jedidia Canty shared that the men didn’t know each other. Canty also stated that the incident stemmed from a “domestic dispute” involving Jones and the unidentified woman.

“She showed respect without making his death about her.”
