SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - A white father and son accused of fatally shooting a black man who was running in their Georgia neighborhood have been taken into custody and charged with murder.
The arrests Thursday came after the release of a video of the February incident sparked national outcry.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says 64-year-old Gregory McMichael and 34-year-old Travis McMichael were arrested and will be booked into the Glynn County Jail.
Twenty-five-year-old Ahmaud Arbery was killed Feb. 23 just outside the port city of Brunswick.
His mother believes he was out for a jog.
The men who pursued him in a pickup told police they thought Arbery was a burglar.
