BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — Attorneys made a final push to persuade the jury in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery, the 25-year-old Black man who was fatally shot last year while running in Georgia. The prosecution said Monday in closing arguments that three white men chased Arbery solely “because he was a Black man running down the street.” The defense repeatedly blamed Arbery for his own death. A defense attorney for the man who fired the fatal shots said Arbery was killed as he violently resisted a legal effort to detain him to answer questions about burglaries in the neighborhood just outside the port city of Brunswick. Closing arguments were to resume Tuesday morning.
