The fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old unarmed Black man out for a jog when he was chased and killed, was caught on video, prompting a call for a grand jury to review the case as the shooter has not been arrested or charged.
The shooting occurred in February but the video was posted online Tuesday, May 5, by a local radio station host.
Arbery’s death is being referred to as a modern-day lynching, as he was unarmed when he was gunned down in Brunswick, Georgia on February 23 by a white citizen named Travis McMichael.
He also happens to be the son of a former district attorney investigator, Gregory McMichael, who was present during the shooting.
According to a district attorney the case will go to a grand jury in coastal Georgia.
