Georgia AG requests federal probe in handling of Arbery case
ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia’s attorney general has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the handling of the killing of Ahmaud Arbery.
Authorities say Arbery, a black man, died at the hands of two white men in February near the coastal city of Brunswick as he ran through a neighborhood. Arbery was killed Feb. 23.
No arrests were made until this month. National outrage over the case swelled last week after video surfaced that appeared to show the shooting.
Carr said the family and community deserve answers about the case.
On Sunday, Georgia authorities announced they had arrested a 20-year-old man after investigating an online threat against people protesting Arbery’s killing.
