Wanda Cooper-Jones, the mother of Ahmaud Arbery, reacts during the vigil. Cooper-Jones filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the three men accused of killing her son, on the anniversary of his death. The $1 million suit also names police and other officials who did not initially bring charges in the case. It alleges the killing was racially motivated, stating that the defendants "were motivated to deprive Ahmaud Arbery of equal protection of the law and his rights by bias, animus, (and) discrimination."

A woman reacts during the vigil. A former Glynn County police officer, Gregory McMichael, 64, and his son Travis, 34, were charged with murder and aggravated assault, but only after state authorities stepped in about two months after the shooting. A third man, William "Roddie" Bryan, joined the McMichaels in chasing down Arbery, police say, and shot a video of the incident on his phone. The clip appears to show the McMichaels confronting Arbery before the jogger was shot with a shotgun.
