Arbery was shot and killed on Feb. 23 in southeast Georgia when his family and friends said he was out on an afternoon jog. Cellphone video showing the moment Arbery was killed has prompted national outrage since surfacing online this week.

Hours before, hundreds of people gathered outside the courthouse, celebrating what would have been the victim’s 26th birthday and demanding answers to why it took ten weeks and the leak of video of this shooting before the GBI was called in. In less than two days, agents arrested the McMichaels outside their Glynn County house.

Reynolds said his agents quickly found probable cause, despite a local investigation that stalled for weeks. A prosecutor on the case said there was “new developments.”
