THREE men accused of the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery were found guilty of his murder on Wednesday.
Arbery’s mother cried as the verdict was announced for Gregory McMichael, 65; her son Travis McMichael, 35; and their friend William ‘Roddie’ Bryan, 52.
The judge was forced to temporarily halt the announcement of the verdict after the courtroom erupted for joy when Gregory’s first guilty charge was read.
Outside the court, protesters celebrated the decision by shouting Arbery’s name.
Arbery’s murder on February 23, 2020 sparked outrage across the country when a video of the death went viral months later.
The three defendants had pleaded not guilty and now face life imprisonment.
