Ferguson Grand Jury Reaches Decision

The grand jury in Ferguson has reached a decision on whether to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Reports are coming in that a press conference is planned for later today.

There are no  indication of whether Wilson, 28, will face state charges in the August shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

If Wilson is not charged, government officials are bracing for protests in the St. Louis area and nationwide. They have discussed emergency plans in the event of a violent reaction, while protest and community leaders have mapped out their response in the hopes of avoiding the unrest that exploded after Brown was killed.

Stay tuned for more information as it become available.
