After deliberating for a little over three hours Tuesday, jurors in the federal trial of the three White men who chased and killed 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery as he jogged through their neighborhood in Glynn County Georgia in 2020 found them guilty on all counts.

Ahmaud Arbery
The jury determined that Travis McMichael (36), the man who fatally shot Arbery, targeted him because he was Black.

His father Greg McMichael (66), who pursued Arbery along with his son after seeing him running in their neighborhood outside, and neighbor William “Roddie” Bryan (52) — who joined the chase in his own pickup and recorded cellphone video of Travis McMichael firing the fatal shots — were also found guilty of violating Ahamud Arbery's civil rights.

The trio, which was convicted of murder in a Georgia state court and sentenced to life in prison, was also found guilty of attempted kidnapping. The McMichaels were also found guilty of one count each of brandishing or discharging a firearm during a violent crime.

They now face up to life in prison for the federal crimes on top of their previous life sentence. Only Bryan would be eligible for parole.
