Father And Son Arrested In Fatal Shooting Of Ahmaud Arbery Denied Bond In First Court Appearance




The father and son accused of fatally shooting an unarmed 25-year-old black jogger earlier this year were reportedly denied bond by a judge on Friday, less than 24 hours after their arrest.

A Glynn County, Ga., Superior Court judge denied bond to Gregory and Travis McMichael during their first court appearance on Friday, according to multiple local reports.



The pair were arrested on murder and aggravated assault charges late Thursday, more than two months after Ahmaud Arbery was fatally shot while out on a run.

Arbery was killed Feb. 23 after the two men allegedly chased him in a pickup claiming that they thought he was the burglar responsible for a series of break-ins in the area.

Footage shared by an attorney representing Arbery’s family, Lee Merritt, sparked outrage this week as it appears to show Arbery struggling with one of the men outside the truck shortly before his death.

In clips of the video shared widely online, Ahmaud Arbery is seen running down a road away from two vehicles and then struggling with a man over a shotgun before being fatally shot.




Arbery’s family says he was killed senselessly, without reason.
