Graphic video surfaces showing fatal shooting of African-American man, family says he was out jogging
Video emerged on May 5 showing the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old man who was pursued by armed men through the suburban neighborhood where he lived outside Brunswick, Georgia, and killed on the afternoon of February 23. Travis McMichael, the man alleged to have killed Arbery, told police at the time he was acting within the scope of a citizen’s arrest. Arbery’s family claims he was simply out for a jog at the time he was targeted by a “posse” said Lee Merritt, the lawyer for Arbery’s mother. The footage was first published by a local radio station.
