White Father, Son Charged with Murdering Black Jogger

A father and son have been arrested and charged with murder and aggravated assault in the February death of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man fatally shot while jogging through a southeast Georgia neighborhood.

Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son Travis McMichael, 34, were arrested Thursday evening and booked at the Glynn County Jail, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

“Based on our involvement in this case … within 36 hours we secured warrants, that speaks volumes for itself to the probable cause in this case,” GBI’s Director Vic Reynolds said Friday morning at a press conference.

In a 28-second cellphone video, Arbery can be seen jogging around a neighborhood just outside the port city of Brunswick on Feb. 23. The footage ends with three loud gunshots.

The McMichaels told police they grabbed their guns and hopped in their truck to pursue Arbery because they believed he was responsible for several recent burglaries in their neighborhood.
