Prosecutor Robert McCulloch announced Monday night that a St. Louis County grand jury will not indict officer Darren Wilson, 28, on any count for firing six shots in an August confrontation that killed 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Benjamin Crump, an attorney for Brown’s family broke the news to USA Today:
“The jury was not inclined to indict on any charges,” Crump said after being informed of the decision by authorities. Prosecutors scheduled an news conference to announce the decision.
The 12-person grand jury, including nine whites and three African Americans, has been in secret hearing from about 60 witnesses along with 3 medical examiners weighing whether Wilson’s should face charges that could have ranged from involuntary manslaughter to murder.
