Suspects Call Arbery N-Word and Hit Him With Truck Before Shooting

(Friday, June 5, 2020) – We are learning more details this morning about the last moments of Ahmaud Arbery’s life.  A Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent has testified that Arbery’s killer called him the N-word after fatally shooting him last February.  Travis McMichael reportedly hurled the racist slur at Arbery who was out for a jog when he was chased down by three white men claiming he was a burglar.  McMichael is accused of shooting Arbery three times with a shotgun.  According to reports, the three men also hit Arbery with a truck as he tried to run.

Attorneys for the trio claim they did nothing illegal.  McMichael, his father Gregory McMichael and William Bryan will stand trial on all the charges.  The Justice Department has launched a hate crime investigation into the case.
