Case of man killed while jogging could go to grand jury after public outcry

Ahmaud Arbery was chased down and then killed by a father and son who said he looked suspicious


SAVANNAH, Ga. — A Georgia prosecutor says he wants a grand jury to consider criminal charges in the fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery who was chased by armed men who suspected him of being a burglar.

District Attorney Tom Durden, of the Atlanta Judicial Circuit made the recommendation Tuesday, May 5.

“After careful review of the evidence presented … I am of the opinion that the case should be presented to the grand jury of Glynn County for consideration of criminal charges against those involved in the death of Mr. Arbery,” Durden wrote in a letter shared by District Attorney for the Brunswick Judicial Circuit Jackie Johnson.

Johnson had to recuse herself from the case because one of the armed suspects was a former investigator with the her office.
