Ahmaud Arbery was shot and killed on February 23. Travis McMichael and his father Greg McMichael have said they did shoot Arbery, but that the shooting was in reaction to a citizen’s arrest situation. The pair had suspected Arbery was an individual who had been committing several home break-ins in the area, and confronted him when they saw him out jogging. Arbery was unarmed.
