Father and Son Arrested, Facing Aggravated Assault and Murder Charges in the Death Ahmaud Arbery

The father and son who are accused of killing Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed Black man who was gunned down while jogging in Georgia earlier this year, have been arrested.

via NBC News:

Gregory McMichael, 64, and Travis McMichael, 34, were arrested for the death of Ahmaud Arbery, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced. Both men were taken into custody and face charges of aggravated assault and murder.

Arbery, 25, was shot to death in Brunswick, a coastal city about midway between Savannah and Jacksonville, Florida, on Feb. 23 as he was running through the Satilla Shores neighborhood. His family insists he was out jogging, while the McMichaels claimed they though he was a burglar.

It’s not full justice, but it’s a step in the right direction.
