Civic group: No Ferguson grand jury decision yet
FERGUSON, Mo. - A St. Louis civic group that promotes downtown businesses has told its members that the grand jury considering charges in the Ferguson police shooting case hasn't reached a decision.
Downtown STL Inc. told members in an email Saturday that the grand jury will reconvene Monday to continue deliberating whether charges are warranted against Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the Aug. 9 fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
The email did not explain how the group knew the information. Ed Magee, a spokesman for St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch, didn't respond to several messages Saturday.
The Brown family's attorney, Ben Crump, said Saturday that he hadn't heard a decision had been reached and that prosecutors had promised to tell him when that happened.
