The U.S. Department of Justice will take over the murder investigation of Ahmaud Arbery to determine if hate crime charges should be filed, Your Content is first to reveal.

“The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, the FBI, and the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia have been supporting and will continue fully to support and participate in the state investigation,” DOJ spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said in a statement. “We are assessing all of the evidence to determine whether federal hate crimes charges are appropriate.” 

Yesterday the Attorney General of Georgia has asked the U.S. Department of Justice to look into the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery.

Attorney General Chris Carr issued a statement Sunday night requesting the federal government investigate the case.

Arbery, 25, was killed by a white father and son who pursued him with guns in a pickup truck as he jogged through their neighborhood in Brunswick in February.
