The Facts

In February 2020, three white men – Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William Bryan – chased and shot Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old black man, in Brunswick, GA.

On Wednesday, a jury found all three men guilty of Arbery’s murder – the trio now faces a sentence of life in prison. A judge will decide if the sentence will be served with or without the possibility of parole.

Travis McMichael – who wielded the weapon and shot Arbery – was found guilty of all nine counts against him, including malice murder, aggravated assault, and false imprisonment.

Gregory McMichael was found guilty of eight of the nine counts against him, while William Bryan was convicted of six of the nine counts against him.

Following the verdict, Prosecutor Linda Dunikoski stated, “The jury system works in this country. And when you present the truth to people, and they see it, they will do the right thing.”
