After weeks of reviewing evidence and hearing testimony, Yahoo News is reporting that a St. Louis County grand jury has reached a decision on whether to charge Ferguson, Mo., Police Officer Darren Wilson (pictured) in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
The 12-member panel, which convened Aug. 20, was asked to decide if there is probable cause to charge Wilson with a crime and what that charge should be. Options range from second-degree involuntary manslaughter to second-degree murder. Wilson, 28, could face life in prison if convicted of the most serious charge, the report says.
The Aug. 9 shooting sparked ongoing–sometimes violent–protests over police shootings of Blacks, especially unarmed men.
