His friends said unless it was pouring raining outside Amdmed was going to run.
This was a running routine he has done on a regular basis
There had been break-ins in the area recently which made people more on alert
a 911 call came in saying that there was a man running past a construction site.
Dispatcher and he is breaking into a house right now?
Caller no it’s all open he is running past an open construction area right now he’s running right now there he goes right now.
Dispatcher: okay so what is he doing?
caller: He’s running down the street
the operator says. “I just need to know what he was doing wrong. Was he just on the premises and not supposed to be?”
According to the report Gregory Mc Michael is standing in his front yard when this call was made.

Gregory is a retired PD and his son Travis grab a hand gun and a riffle
They jump into a truck and chased him down trying to cut him off they said the man just ran around them.
Travis got out and held the shotgun on the side of the street
He ran up to Travis yelling at him Amdmed in the video you can see tried to get the gun away from Travis when he put it in his face. Three shots were fired with a shotgun and Amdmed was dead.
No arrest was made the same PD department that is investigating this case is the same one that Gregory use to work for. Some believe because he uses to work in this department it is getting swept under the rug.
There were no such string of crimes was reported in the weeks before the shooting. Police have yet to clarify whether Arbery is accused of any crime at a home that was being built.
Because of the father's relationship, 4 district attorneys recused themselves.
One said in there statement that they were acting in self-defense. That two armed white men against one male black man were perfectly legal. In the state of Georgia, they have what is called a citizens arrest where any citizen can try to arrest a person if they feel threatened. They also have a law there where if anyone feels threatened at any time they are legally allowed to go ahead and shoot anyone that they are threatened by. This was in place so that places like convenient store workers if they are getting robbed they can shot a person without being convicted.
I believe that because of this pandemic his case is being overlooked and that also because the shooter was a son of a former PD officer that this got swept under the rug.
Justice is not served in this case. Amdmed's mother said she will not watch the video she brought him into this world and no mother should watch their child come out of this world.
Gregory and Travis will not comment on this matter.
To me, this isn't self-defense this is accusing and execution just because of fear and judgment.
Despite the pandemic the public has come together with signs saying we run with Amdmed and posting that video of him being shot on social media. It has even caught the eye of Politicians like Joe Biden
The video is clear: Ahmaud Arbery was killed in cold blood. My heart goes out to his family, who deserve justice and deserve it now. It is time for a swift, full, and transparent investigation into his murder. https://t.co/alvY5WjdHx— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) May 6, 2020
GBI and grand jury will weigh in:
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation did not initially open a probe because the Glynn County Police Department didn't request the bureau's help, though it did request assistance investigating threats against the GCPD and the release of Tuesday's video, according to the bureau. Hours later, the GBI said Durden had formally requested an investigation into Arbery's killing.
Video captures the grisly confrontation
Shortly before Durden's and the GBI's announcements, a local radio personality released a video that appears to show Arbery's killing. The captured events match numerous accounts of the shooting -- including, in many respects -- that of Merritt, Waycross Judicial Circuit District Attorney George Barnhill and, as chronicled in the police report, Greg McMichael. CNN has not verified who recorded the video. The 36-second clip shows the end of the chase and the shooting. It has sound, but only the shotgun blasts are clearly audible. Arbery's and the McMichaels' words, if any were exchanged, cannot be heard. It is not clear what happened before the video begins or after it ends. Taken from inside a vehicle behind Arbery, it begins with Arbery jogging down the middle of the street toward a truck. Greg McMichael is in the back of the truck and his son, Travis, is standing near the hood, according to the Glynn County police report, which does not mention the video. As Arbery approaches the truck, he veers into someone's yard to go around the truck blocking his path. As he passes the truck, he makes a sharp left and tussles with Travis McMichael over the shotgun.
Greg McMichael and his son, Travis, told police they thought Arbery was a criminal. A shot goes off, and the two disappear off the left side of the screen as Arbery appears to throw a punch. Greg McMichael, still standing in the truck bed, produces a handgun but doesn't fire. A second shot is heard off-screen. As they come back into view, both clutching the shotgun, a third shot goes off just as Arbery lands a punch to Travis McMichael's head. Arbery recoils. Blood appears on his white T-shirt, below his left ribcage. He stumbles and drops face-first to the street. Travis McMichael walks away, shotgun in hand, as his father runs toward Arbery with his handgun.The first shot went through Arbery's right palm, consistent with Arbery grabbing the gun barrel, Barnhill wrote. The second shot is consistent with Travis McMichael "attempting to push the gun away from Arbery while Arbery was pulling it toward himself. The third shot, too, appears to be in a struggle over the gun," the prosecutor wrote. Greg McMichael had blood on his hands when police arrived, observed a Glynn County police officer, who concluded in his report that the blood came from Greg McMichael turning Arbery's body over to check for weapons. The report does not say any were found.
It was self-defense, recused prosecutor says
Barnhill, the second prosecutor to step down in the case, said he did so only at Arbery's mother's behest. She claimed he had a conflict of interests, he wrote. The district attorney's son is a prosecutorial investigator with the Brunswick Judicial Circuit, from which Greg McMichael retired after serving with the Glynn County Police Department. (The Brunswick circuit's district attorney was the first to recuse herself.)Though Barnhill saw no conflict, he wrote, he agreed to step down. In doing so, he wrote an April 2 letter saying the McMichaels and William Bryan, a third man involved who is listed as a witness in the police report, engaged in "hot pursuit" and had "solid first-hand probable cause," as civilians, to detain Arbery."It appears their intent was to stop and hold this criminal suspect until law enforcement arrived. Under Georgia law, this is perfectly legal," Barnhill wrote, citing state code that says civilians can arrest someone if they have immediate knowledge of an offense or if a perpetrator is trying to flee after committing a felony.
The homeowner has gone and posted several footage of what looks like Amdmed walking through the house. But he doesn't take anything and doesn't try to be discreet.
Yes he was trespassing but I think he was more curious about the house than trying to steal something.
