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

  1. That was a lot of police effort over giving the guy a ticket for trespassing. These same officers took no action after they murdered Arbery for no reason…. because….

    1. @Kaye WeComeToFete “but never stealing” You absolutely don’t know that. The items stolen at Larry English’s house were out of view of the camera. There were no cameras were the items were stolen at the other houses. Arbery had a criminal history of theft.

    2. @Kaye WeComeToFete
      Arbery was- trespassing with intent to steal -which is the same as theft in GA.
      A store owner, (non-white), said Arbrey’s method of stealing was to jog, steal and run way.

    3. @Richard Hinman” intend to steal”?! How the hell do you know that? Aurbery (RIP) didn’t steal anything. He killed because he was “suspicious while black”.

    4. @Khalistar Probably because he was caught on camera rummaging in Larry English’s house on multiple occasions in the middle of the night. He was also seen on the neighbor’s property across the street at night.

    1. & I ALSO JUST DIDN’T WARN YOU THAT; ABOUT THE ‘SOUTH PARK’ ANIMATION CREW MEMBERS, THESE GUYS ARE HARD CORE SATANISTS. THERE’S ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY TOTALLY NOTHING THAT’S SACRED TO THEM.
