(NEWSONE.com) — 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 in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
The jury determined that no probable cause exist to file charges against officer Darren Wilson. There will be no indictment of Darren Wilson in the case of the shooting death of Mike 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.
