Ahmaud Arbery Was Chased For Over 4 Minutes Before Being Shot and Killed, According to Attorney

New details have emerged regarding the murder case of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Glynn County man who was shot and killed in February while he was jogging through a Satilla Shores neighborhood.

Arbery’s family attorney, S. Lee Merritt, has been able to confirm that Arbery was chased for more than four minutes by both William Roddie Bryan and the McMichaels before he was shot and killed by Travis McMichael.

Although the video recorded by Bryan shows less than a minute of the encounter between the McMichaels and Arbery, the attorneys representing the Arbery family say they were able to confirm that the chase before that video went on for longer than four minutes.

According to a recent Twitter post from activist Shaun King, the Merritt Law Firm was able to confirm the chase lasted more than four minutes after a deep analysis of the scene, 911 calls, police reports and eyewitness testimony.

Both Gregory and Travis McMicahel were arrested and charged with felony murder and aggravated assault in Arbery’s death earlier this month, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, but Bryan was not arrested.

According to the initial police report, Gregory and Travis told police that they pursued Arbery because they believed he was the suspect in recent break-ins.
