After Orr was shot in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene, police identified a suspect as Atlanta resident Jamichael Jones, who is wanted on charges of murder, home invasion, and aggravated assault.
Jones and Orr were not acquainted, according to police, but Jones was involved in a "domestic situation" with a woman Orr was visiting at the apartment.
Orr debuted as Trouble in 2011 with the release of his first mixtape, the first in a series of nine mixtapes that included guest appearances from artists such as Lupe Fiasco and Young Thug.
Mike Will Made It signed Orr to his label in 2018 and produced the entirety of his debut album Edgewood, which features Drake, the Weeknd, Quavo, Offset, and Fetty Wap, among others.
Orr was described as "a true voice for his city and an inspiration to the community he proudly represented" by Def Jam Records, while Drake posted a commemorative image of him on Instagram.
Other rappers who paid tribute to Orr included Gucci Mane, Juicy J, and TI.
