Gregory McMichael, Travis McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan are on trial for the February 23, 2020, killing of Ahmaud Arbery. Prosecutors claim 25-year-old Arbery was out for a jog when the McMichaels grabbed their guns, jumped in a truck, and chased Arbery through the Satilla Shores neighborhood of Brunswick, Georgia. Bryan joined the chase and started filming with his cell phone, capturing the final moments of Arbery’s life. The video shows Travis McMichael pulling his shotgun on Arbery followed by a quick exchange of blows before the gun goes off three times, killing Arbery. Lawyers for the McMichaels say the father and son were legally justified in defending themselves while trying to detain someone they thought was a burglary suspect. Bryan’s defense says he had no idea what the McMichaels were going to do and insists he was not aiding or abetting them.
