The convictions for Greg McMichael, son Travis McMichael and neighbour William “Roddie” Bryan came after jurors deliberated for about 10 hours.

The McMichaels grabbed guns and jumped in a pick-up truck to pursue the 25-year-old man after seeing Mr Arbery running in their neighbourhood outside the Georgia port city of Brunswick.

Bryan joined the pursuit in his own truck and recorded a mobile phone video of Travis McMichael fatally shooting Mr Arbery.

The video leaked online two months later. The convictions come as part of a larger national reckoning on racial injustice in the US.
