Grand Jury Reaches Decision In Michael Brown Shooting


Ferguson, Missouri Is Gearing Up For The Announced Decision.

Ed Magee, a spokesperson for the St. Louis Prosecuting Attorney's Office, says the news conference will occur at 8 p.m. at the Justice Center.

All schools have been closed for Tuesday. Businesses have been boarding up in anticipation of possible rioting.

100 FBI agents have been dispatched to the area to assist in any unrest that might occur if the decision is not agreeable to the residents, who have been protesting daily since Aug. 9, 2014.

The Missouri Governor, Jay Nixon, also declared a State Of Emergency, and pleaded for calm.

"The Grand Jury hearing the Michael Brown/Darren Wilson investigation has reached a decision and it will be announced later today," the office of the prosecuting attorney for St. Louis County said today.

The panel must decide whether to indict Wilson for shooting Brown at least six times during a confrontation this summer. Some witnesses said Brown had his hands up when he was shot. The police said Wilson fired because Brown was advancing on him.

The grand jury has been working on the case since Aug. 20 -- less than two weeks after the shooting -- meeting at least once every week.
