The grand jury, looking into the case involving Ferguson police officer who fatally shot the 18-year-old boy, is unlikely to pronounce its decision into the issue of indictment of the cop this weekend, sources said on Saturday.
The sources further added that the grand jury is expected to reconvene on Monday.
The 12-member grand jury is considering the case and will take decision on whether charges are warranted against Officer Darren Wilson.
On August 9, Wilson had shot dead teenager Michael Brown during a confrontation on a street in Ferguson.
Meanwhile, the resident awaited the court’s final decision over Wilson’s indictment with baited breath on Saturday.
The authorities have also beefed up the security arrangements to ensure safety and security of the people upon the announcement of the verdict.
The encounter of a black unarmed young boy by a white cop has once again triggered the longstanding racial and ethnicity tensions in the country. Strong demonstrations and protests (sometimes violent) have been launched since Brown’s death. The police have also arrested three protesters on Friday amid unrest in the St. Louis area.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officials on Saturday confirmed arrest of two men who were accused of buying explosives that they had reportedly planned to use during protests in the area.
The FBI has also sent about 100 additional agents to Ferguson to assist the law enforcement agencies in maintaining the law and order situation in the area, sources said.
