“We didn’t give up. The community didn’t give up. We knew the truth and we were not going to be silenced,” Julie Jordan said to the crowd. Let’s all keep running with Ahmaud until justice is served.”
Late Thursday, the GBI announced two arrests in the shooting. Greg and Travis McMichael have both been charged with murder and aggravated assault.
Early Friday, GBI Director Vic Reynolds announced additional arrests are possible in the case.
Those not in Brunswick still participated in the event, with many running 2.23 miles — in honor of Arbery’s Feb. 23 death — and posting pictures on social media with the hashtag #IRunWithMaud.
