Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Man Who Filmed Ahmaud Arbery Killing Arrested On Murder Charges”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A third suspect was arrested Thursday in connection with the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, a Black Georgia man who was shot while jogging.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation arrested William “Roddie” Bryan Jr., 50, on charges of felony murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.

On Feb. 23, 25-year-old Arbery was killed after two white men — Gregory McMichael, 64, and Travis McMichael, 34 — confronted him with guns while he was out for a jog. Video of the incident taken by Bryan shows Arbery attempting to run past the car of the two men before he is shot by Travis McMichael.

The father and son said they believed him to be a burglar. S. Lee Merrit, attorney for Arbery’s family, said it was a “modern-day lynching.”

Merrit also contends that Bryan played an equal role in the killing of Arbery when he decided to film the fatal encounter. Prior to Thursday’s arrest, protests ignited in Georgia calling for Bryan to be held accountable.
