Vigil for Ahmaud Arbery

BRUNSWICK, Ga. — It’s been one year since Ahmaud Arbery was shot and killed while his family said he was jogging in a quiet Brunswick neighborhood.

To finish the run in his honor, more than 100 people gathered in the Satilla Shores neighborhood on Tuesday evening on the one-year mark of his death.

The family of Arbery, including his father, Marcus Arbery Sr., led the memorial walk.

“Walking through here when you know your kid got killed just trying to take a jog, it’s hard,” Arbery Sr. said.

He said the pain of losing his youngest son is still fresh.

“It’s a struggle for me and my family,” Arbery Sr. said.

The memorial walk started at the entrance to the neighborhood on Satilla Drive. The group hosted a candlelight visit at the intersection of Holmes Road and Satilla Drive, where Arbery took his last breath.

“We got to get justice for my boy,” Arbery Sr. said.
