DOJ Investigating Killing of Ahmaud Arbery as Hate Crime

HeadlineMay 26, 2020

The Department of Justice is reportedly investigating the killing of Ahmaud Arbery as a hate crime. The Arbery family attorney, Lee Merritt, shared the news Monday. Ahmaud Arbery’s case has drawn nationwide outrage after video emerged showing two white men chasing after the 25-year-old Black man as he was jogging, then shooting him to death. No arrests were made until the video came to light earlier this month, even though the murder took place in February. A third white man who filmed the killing has also been arrested.
