As OK! previously reported, on February 23, 2020, Arbury was going for a run in South Georgia when two of the men spotted the young man and followed him in their pickup truck. According to an incident report filed by Glynn County police, the men then armed themselves with guns and followed Arbury.
In obtained video footage, a gunshot can be heard as Arbery tussled with a man on the street over what looks like a gun. A second shot then sounds off and Arbery punched his attacker. After the third shot, Arbery staggered off a few feet and then fell down.
