A black guy identified as Ahmaud Arbery, falsely assumed to be a criminal was shot dead in Brunswick, Georgia in the US.
A video that has gone viral shows Ahmaud running at a jogging pace approaches a pic-up truck parked the street. There are two white men, one outside the truck with a shotgun, a34-year-old Travis McMichael, and another inside, 64-year-old Gregory McMichael, who is the dad.
There is an immediate alteraction when Ahmaud encounters the two men, who have been chasing him and blocking his jogging path. Ahmaud and the Travis get into a fight, with Ahmaud trying to take control of the shotgun.
Shots are fired and Ahmaud gets hit, tries to run but collapses to the ground due to the injuries incurred. Travis rolls him over to search for weapons from Ahmaud’s limp body.
This killing has been condemned by many, demanding justice for Ahmaud’s family, among them, being LeBron who is a professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association, and Joe Biden, an American politician who served as the 47th vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017.
More than 100 protesters flooded outside the Georgia Capitol building in Atalanta demanding justice for Ahmaud.
A district attorney in Georgia has now ruled that a grand jury should decide whether charges should be brought.
