Remember the shooting that took place in Brunswick, Georgia, and was all over the news? Well there's been a new 'accomplice' who has been jailed and charged with felony murder for the shooting of Ahmaud Arbery.
The new suspect filmed the act of Arbery being chased and shot by father and son duo, the McMichaels. He apparently was a neighbor who noticed something happening so he decided to take his cell phone out and hit the record button.
I don't care if he was just trying to get a juicy video for the police or whatever but he should've stepped in to diffuse the situation. Or better yet call the police and stay out of it because of guns being drawn.
He's guilty in that sense alone.
According to The Daily Mail:
Bryan, a neighbor of the McMichaels, watched and shot the footage of the attack. It was his cellphone footage that exposed the brutal killing of the jogger. He will be booked into the Glynn County Jail.
Ben Crump, an attorney for the victim's family, had already called for Bryan's arrest for aiding and abetting the McMichaels in Arbery's murder.
'This is William 'Roddie' Bryan – who we believe may have been the third person in pursuit of #AhmaudArbery. If he chased down Ahmaud and filmed his execution, he should be arrested and charged with aiding and abetting them in committing this crime of murder. #RunWithMaud,' Crump wrote in a Twitter.
Bryan's attorney Kevin Gough has previously denied claims his client was armed at the time of the killing and insisted he is 'not a vigilante'.
Bryan claimed there had been a 'number of crimes in the neighborhood in recent weeks - despite cops saying there were no burglaries reported in the two months leading up to the young man's death.
Gough also said the shooting simply 'start[ed] happening in front of him' and Bryan had handed over the footage to police 'immediately' after the incident.
He told Weekend TODAY Bryan had arrived at the scene after he saw Arbery running through the neighborhood and being pursued by the McMichaels in their truck.
'He was in his yard and this just starts happening in front of him,' said Gough. 'He gets in his car and is trying to document that.'
The neighbor seems shocked by his situation. If that was his friend being chased with guns, no matter the situation, he should have done something other than hitting the record button.
It is sickening.
