Grand jury hears testimony from Wilson
(Reuters) - The Ferguson, Missouri police officer whose fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager has ignited weeks of protests testified Tuesday before a St. Louis grand jury hearing evidence in the case, according to a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Darren Wilson, who has been in hiding since the Aug. 9 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, spent nearly four hours telling his version of events to the 12 members of the grand jury who are weighing possible charges against him, the newspaper said on Wednesday, citing a source.
The proceedings of a grand jury are closed to the public and the prosecutor’s office would not confirm the report.
I’m not surprised that the grand jury is looking at the case. I’m not surprised that Wilson is available to the grand jury.
