Armed Black Panthers members showed up at the neighborhood where 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery was chased down and murdered by two white men. They joined Arbery’s family on a walk for justice over the weekend.
Ahmaud Arbery was fatally shot by father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael while out jogging in Brunswick on February 23. The McMichaels allegedly believed Arbery was a burglary suspect, and they trailed him in their pick-up truck before Travis McMichael shot him.
The armed protesters from the Black Panther Party, ‘I Fight For My People’, and ‘My Vote is Hip Hop’ gathered Saturday to demonstrate close to where Arbery died
A vigil was also held Saturday, a day after what would have been Arbery’s 26th birthday, which was attended by friends and family including Arbery’s mother and sister.
