In February, 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery was shot and killed while jogging a block away from where he lived according to his father. A video was leaked to journalist Shaun King yesterday that shows the moment Arbery was shot and killed.
In the video we see Arbery jogging down the street and a white pick-up truck waiting in the left lane. As Arbery gets closer, we see him attempt to run around the truck.
A split second later we see him on the other side of the truck, struggling with an un-identified male over a gun. Moments later Arbery was shot and killed by Travis McMichael. McMichael is the son of a former detective for the district attorneys office.
Travis and his father, who was in the back of the truck, claim they trying to make a citizen’s arrest. They allege there had been a series of break-ins recently and that Arbery fit the description of the suspect.
There have been no arrest in Arbery’s shooting death.
Although the shooting happened over two months ago, the release of the video this week has sparked outrage with people including Lebron James weighing in on the issue.
