Ferguson, Mo., grand jury to meet Monday, decide on possible indictment of police officer
A grand jury decision on whether to indict Ferguson, Mo., police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown appears to be delayed until Monday at the earliest, according to a federal law enforcement official.
The St. Louis County grand jury is expected to reconvene then, according to the official who spoke to USA Today on condition of anonymity.
The timing of a decision is still unclear, the official added. It had been expected as early as this weekend.
Kansas City police Chief Darryl Forté tweeted an update Saturday night about the grand jury. “Grand jury did not convene today,” the tweet from his account read. “Expected to convene next week. Will continue to update as info becomes available.”
On Friday, a spokesman for St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch declined to say whether the panel was still meeting five hours after the prosecutor told reporters that jurors were reviewing evidence.
No details are available on when the decision will be announced, the spokesman said.
