BRUNSWICK, Ga. (WSB) -- A grand jury has indicted three men arrested for shooting and killing Ahmuad Arbery on nine charges including malice murder, the Cobb County District Attorney announced Wednesday.
Greg McMichael, Travis McMichael and William “Roddie” Bryan were arrested on murder charges in May, months after the McMichaels chased down Arbery in their truck as he jogged through their neighborhood on February 23. Travis McMichael and Arbery got in a scuffle and McMichael shot Arbery three times in the back with a shotgun. Arbery was unarmed.

Bryan filmed the incident as he also pursued Arbery. The video went viral and sparked outrage. The GBI was called in to investigated in May leading to the McMichaels arrest nearly two months after Arbery’s death.
District Attorney Joyette Holmes said that the indictment Wednesday formally charges all three men with malice murder, four counts of felony murder, two counts of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment, the DA said.
