Arbery was killed while jogging through a Brunswick neighborhood.

GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is continuing their investigation into the death of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery as teams executed a search warrant at the home of the father and son accused of killing the unarmed jogger.

GBI Agents entered the home of Gregory and Travis McMichael at around 6:39 p.m. on Tuesday.

A GBI spokesperson said the investigative act is part of the murder investigation and that the warrant is sealed.

Arbery, a black man, was killed Feb. 23 in a residential neighborhood of Brunswick. 

Gregory McMichael, 64, and his 34-year-old son, Travis McMichael, were arrested for the death more than two months later and remain in jail. The men, who pursued him in a pickup truck, told police they thought Arbery was a burglar.

The GBI says no further information is being released in regards to the search warrant due to the active and ongoing case.
