Ahmaud Arbery’s Murder
Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old black man, set out for a jog in Brunsick, Georgia, one afternoon in late February but was killed by Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son, Travis McMichael, 34, both of whom are white. McMichael and his son, Travis McMichael say they mistook Arbery for a burglary suspect. So, they grabbed two guns, hopped into their pickup truck, and pursued him. Arbery was shot during an altercation with the pair, and died of his wounds. The men who killed him roamed free for more than two months.
This incident was thrust into the national spotlight in early May when a video filmed by a witness, William ‘Roddie’ Bryan showing the gruesome footage of Arbery’s final moments, was uploaded to social media and shared widely. It has since led to the arrests of the McMichaels on felony murder and aggravated assault charges, been assigned to a fourth district attorney, and prompted widespread anger and calls for justice
