RA grand jury in Missouri has reached a decision on whether to indict Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot and killed unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson in August, a lawyer for the Brown family said Monday.
The prosecutor overseeing the case planned an announcement later in the day, but he gave no indication what it would be.
Benjamin Crump, the lawyer, said Monday afternoon that the family had been notified. He told MSNBC that the family was “praying for an indictment, and they’re trying to put their faith in the justice system.”
