Ahmaud Arbery: GBI searches alleged killers’ home into the night after more footage of slain jogger’s deadly shooting surfaces

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation spent over two hours Tuesday night searching the home of a father and son accused of killing 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery.

WSB-TV Channel 2 reports that while the agents didn’t appear to leave with anything after searching the home off of Satilla Drive in Brunswick, they also inspected vehicles and a boat dock before leaving. The searches came after more developments in the case, the outlet reports.

According to Lee Merritt, an attorney for the Arbery family, additional videos have been uncovered from the February 23 shooting incident that left Arbery dead. Although it’s unclear how many additional videos exist, Merritt said the videos will likely have an impact on the case.

Channel 2’s Tony Thomas spoke with Merritt about the videos. When asked what the additional footage showed, Merritt reportedly confirmed that the videos were taken both during and after the shooting.

The footage, which hasn’t been made public, is now with investigators, Merritt said.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, retired district attorney investigator Gregory McMichael and his son, Travis McMichael, allegedly followed Arbery in their truck for several minutes, around a Satilla Shores neighborhood in Brunswick, in a chase that lasted around four minutes.

After circling around a block, McMichael and his son stopped their truck on a residential road and waited for Arbery. As Arbery approached and ran around the truck, a scuffle broke out. Travis McMichael, who had gotten out of the truck with a shotgun, began fighting with Arbery.

Gregory McMichael remained in the bed of the truck, armed with a .357 Magnum. Another person, identified as William “Roddie” Bryan, parked his car behind the suspects’ truck and recorded with his phone as Arbery fell to the ground after getting shot twice in the chest by Travis McMichael’s shotgun.

Bryan has not been arrested or charged in the incident.

Gregory McMichael would later tell investigators that they brought guns because they thought Arbery was armed, although an investigation determined that Arbery was unarmed at the time of the incident.

Almost three months after the deadly shooting, the father and son were arrested and charged with murder and aggravated assault, following an investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The suspects purportedly said they were attempting to make a citizen’s arrest when Arbery was killed.

The McMichaels remain behind bars without bond.
