Father and son involved in the killing of black jogger Ahmaud Arbery arrested at their home by heavily-armed officers
This is the moment the two white men involved in the killing of black jogger Ahmaud Arbery, were arrested at their home in Brunswick, Georgia.
Heavily-armed officers with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrived at the home of ex-cop Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son Travis McMichael, 34, at around 7.50 pm and led them out in handcuffs.
The father and son were booked into Glynn County Jail on charges of murder and aggravated assault.
Their arrest comes days after a graphic video of Arbery’s final moments was shared online this week, prompting a national outcry from people who called for the suspects to be arrested and charged.
In the video, Arbery was seen jogging in a white neighborhood when he was stopped by McMichael and his father in a white pickup truck. McMichael was armed with a shotgun. Arbery ran around the truck trying to avoid a confrontation before he and McMichael started struggling.
After at least two shots, the men continued struggling over the gun, until Arbery stumbled away, and then collapsed to the ground. He was later pronounced dead.
