BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — Ahmaud Arbery was at a crossroads, his life stretching out before him, his troubles largely behind him. He had enrolled in a Georgia college, preparing to become an electrician, just like his uncles. But first, he decided to take a break. To help keep his head clear, he ran just about every day. On Feb. 23, 2020, he was shot during his run by a father and son who told police they believed he was responsible for break-ins in their neighborhood — a Black man, killed by two white men. Those close to him say Arbery was just coming into his own.
