A Georgia prosecutor is reportedly considering filing charges against a white police officer and his son, who chased and killed unarmed Black jogger, Ahmaud Arbery in February.

According to The Guardian, Tom Durden, the acting district attorney for a neighboring district, posted a letter to Facebook stating that he believed "the case should be presented to the grand jury of Glynn county for consideration of criminal charges against those involved in the death of Mr Arbery."

The Georgia Bureau of Investigations have confirmed that they will be looking into Ahmaud's murder.

"Our goal in every investigation is to seek the truth," GBI Director Vic Reynolds told reporters. "And that's exactly what we intend on doing in this matter. I realize that emotions are running high in this community and they're running high throughout the state, and the last thing anyone wants to do is extend us any patience. But I also realize that this investigation must be done correctly and therefore I must ask for a little of your patience."
