Darren Wilson Will Not Be Indicted On For the Death of Mike Brown
The Grand Jury surrounding the case against Ferguson, Missouri Police Officer, Darren Wilson, has reached a verdict that Darren Wilson acted in reason upon killing a young and unarmed teen, Mike Brown. The Jury has been meeting for nearly 100 days trying to investigate as to whether Darren Wilson acted unlawfully in killing Mike Brown.
A grand jury decided not to indict Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, setting off fresh confrontations between protesters and police in the tense Missouri city Monday night.
While most of the protesters were peacefully assembled on the streets of Ferguson, some protesters smashed the windows of a police cruiser and tried to overturn it, CNN's Jake Tapper reported. Some picked up bricks and smashed the windows of a restaurant.
Several gunshots were heard, CNN teams on the ground said.
Some protesters rushed the officers lined up in front of the Ferguson police department. Some in the crowd told the agitators to stop throwing bottles, but their urgings fells on deaf air.
Police responded by lobbing tear gas, even though they said they were smoke pellets.
One protester named Angel told CNN that a woman in the crowd had a heart attack, and as several people tried to carry the woman away, they were tear gassed.
In the distance, a police cruiser was on fire.
