Michael Brown’s family, President Barack Obama, and others have all taken the call to ask for calm after an announcement has been made.
(CNN) – The parents of Michael Brown have been notified the grand jury has reached a decision regarding the police officer who shot and killed their 18-year-old son. A news conference reportedly be held 5 p.m. ET.
The grand jury in Missouri reconvened on Monday, to decide whether to indict police officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.
Meanwhile, tensions remain high in Ferguson.
Overnight, protesters marched, blocking traffic in the city. It was relatively calm, except for one incident.
“I’m just trying to get home, bro.”
“I know, but you going to be here for a minute, bro.”
While recording the exchange, LA Times reporter Matt Pearce was rushed to the hospital after being struck in the head by a small object.
“I didn’t see anybody throw anything,” Pearce said. “I didn’t see what it was. It just felt like a conk on the head.”
The fire is still burning in the hearts of protesters awaiting a decision from the St. Louis County grand jury.
The group of 12, made up of five women and seven men, nine white and three black, met Monday, after ending the day Friday with no decision.
