On February 23, 2020, Ahmaud Marquez Arbery, an unarmed 25-year-old African-American man, was fatally shot near Brunswick in Glynn County, Georgia, while jogging on Holmes Road just before the intersection with Satilla Drive in the Satilla Shores neighborhood. Arbery had been pursued and confronted by two white residents, Travis McMichael and his father Gregory, who were armed and driving a pickup truck. The event was recorded on video by a third Satilla Shores resident, William “Roddie” Bryan, who was following Arbery in a second vehicle.

On May 7, the GBI arrested the McMichaels and charged them with felony murder and aggravated assault (74 days after Arbery was murdered). On May 21, Bryan was arrested and charged with felony murder and attempted false imprisonment.

A GoFundMe for Ahmaud’s mother has been set up. As of June 21, 2020 the fund has raised over $1.9 million dollars.
