BRUNSWICK, Georgia – Three white men were convicted of murder Wednesday in the shooting death of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old black man whose murder last year helped fuel a national debate on racial profiling and vigilantism.

The men later said they were attempting to make a citizen’s arrest and that Travis McMichael was acting in self-defense, because he fired only after Arbery, in his final moments, pounced on him and his gun.
