No Indictment of Darren Wilson in Ferguson Fatal Shooting Case of Michael Brown

St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced Monday night that a grand jury has decided not to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

St Louis County Prospecuting Attorney, Robert McCulloch announced Monday night that the St. Louis County grand jury declined to indict officer Darren Wilson, 28, for firing six shots in an August confrontation that killed 18-year-old Ferguson resident Michael Brown. The prosecutor announced that the grand jurors did not believe there was probable cause to indict police officer Darren Wilson.

The prosecutor provided critical statements of some of the media reporting on the case in an inflammatory manner.

After the August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, McCulloch announced that he would bring the case before a grand jury instead of arresting police officer Darren Wilson. Jurors would decide what charges might be brought, if any. The grand jury was not asked to endorse a specific charge, which is the usual presentation to a grand jury. The case was also presented to the grand jury before the police investigation was completed.

McCulloch is the son of a St. Louis police officer who was killed in the line of duty when he was twelve years old.
