Lee Merritt, an attorney for Ahmaud’s family always believed William “Roddie” Bryan had blood on his hands despite his efforts of acting innocent.
Right now, we know that he recorded this video from a very close proximity. According to his attorney, he was home one minute and within minutes, he was behind Ahmaud Arbery with his cellphone, recording his ambush.
His response to this very loud, violent shotgun shots repeatedly, and someone being murdered in front of him, was silence. He just kept recording. You didn’t hear him gasp. He didn’t cut off the camera. He didn’t intervene. He didn’t honk his horn. And we believe that is because he knew what was about to happen, and he played a role in it.

The GBI said Bryan will be booked into the Glynn County Jail. A news conference with the GBI is expected Friday morning at 9 a.m.
