A man who called police to report Ahmaud Arbery inside a house under construction testified Wednesday, giving jurors a new perspective of what happened moments before Arbery was chased down by three other men and fatally shot.
Matthew Albenze, who has lived in the Satilla Shores neighborhood of Brunswick for more than 30 years, said that minutes after he called the police nonemergency number, he heard shots and came across a “shocking scene,” where Arbery’s body was splayed on the road.
Albenze is the first witness who is not a police officer to testify in the murder trial of three white men accused of killing Arbery, who was Black. After father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael spotted Arbery in their neighborhood, William “Roddie” Bryan joined in and they “cornered” Arberyhe was fatally shot by Travis.
