Judge Timothy Walmsley asked Marcus Arbery Sr., the father of Ahmaud Arbery, to leave the courtroom after he reacted to the guilty verdict of Travis McMichael – the man who shot his son.

Arbery exclaimed “Woohoo!” after the first guilty verdict was read.

“I ask that whoever just made an outburst be removed from the court, please,” Walmsley said.

“If you feel like you need to make a comment regarding the verdict, I ask that you step outside the courtroom now,” he added.

Outside of the courtroom there were chants of “We got justice,” CNN’s Sara Sidner said, adding, “That is the sentiment of the crowd outside.”
