Multiple outlets are reporting that the Missouri grand jury investigating officer Darren Wilson’s role in the death of Michael Brown has reached a decision which will “likely” be announced later today. From CNN:

The announcement will come from the St. Louis County prosecutor, the sources said.

The sources did not know what decision will be announced.

Federal authorities are also investigating whether Wilson could be charged with violating Brown’s civil rights, but have “all but concluded they don’t have a case,” the Washington Post reports.

Post reporter Wesley Lowery, whose coverage of the Wilson/Brown/Ferguson story has been essential, says the grand jury announcement is not expected for “a few hours” and that he is currently “eating Chipotle.”
