Missouri governor to discuss Ferguson preparations

Posted: Updated:

WELDON SPRING, Mo. (AP) -  Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon plans to outline law enforcement plans as the St. Louis region prepares for the grand jury announcement in the Michael Brown case.

Nixon and law enforcement leaders are expected to speak at a Tuesday news conference at Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop C headquarters in suburban St. Louis.

The unarmed black 18-year-old Brown was shot and killed by white Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9.

The shooting led to significant unrest in Ferguson and throughout the St. Louis area, and there is concern protests will escalate after the announcement.

The grand jury is deciding if Wilson will face charges.

St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch said Monday that the grand jury still is meeting and a decision is expected this month.
