Judge Timothy Walmsley asked Marcus Arbery Sr., Ahmed Arbery’s father, to leave the courtroom after his reaction to the guilty verdict of Travis McMichael – the man who shot his son.

“Woohoo!” Arbery exclaimed. After reading the first guilty verdict.

“I am requesting that everyone who has made a spree be removed from court, please,” Walmsley said.

“If you feel you need to make a comment about the ruling, I ask that you step out of the courtroom now,” he added.

Outside the courtroom, there were chants of “We got justice,” CNN’s Sarah Seidner said, adding, “That’s how the crowd outside feels.”
