A man who filmed the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man in the USA state of Georgia has been charged with murder. More than two months passed before authorities arrested Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son, Travis McMichael, 34, on charges of felony murder and aggravated assault.

A tussle follows and the younger Mr McMichael appears to fire a gun at point blank range at Mr Arbery, who falls to the street. Gough has previously tried to distance Bryan from the McMichaels' actions, telling reporters Tuesday that Bryan "is not now, and has never been more than a witness to the shooting of Mr. Arbery".

He is now being held in Glynn County Jail.

Arbery, 25, stumbled and fell to the ground where he was pronounced dead on February 23.

The other two men in the video, Gregory and Travis McMichael, were arrested two days after the video became public, once the G.B.I. took over the case.

Bryan's attorney, Kevin Gough, did not immediately return a phone message Thursday. Their attorneys have maintained their innocence in previous statements. Travis McMichael's attorney Robert G. Rubin asked that "no one rush to judgment, and to allow the legal process to run its course".

On the same day investigators executed the search warrant, S. Lee Merritt - one of the attorneys for the Arbery family - slammed an unrelated police body camera video that was released on Monday by The Guardian that showed Arbery being questioned by a Glynn County police officer and had a stun gun fired at him by another officer. "He simply takes it all in", Merritt said.

"Nor did William "Roddie" Bryan have any conversation with anyone else that day prior to the shooting about criminal activity in the neighborhood", said Mr Gough, using Mr Bryan's nickname.
