*(Via Yahoo News) – Nearly a week after Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency ahead of a decision in the contentious Ferguson police shooting, reports surfaced Saturday that an announcement may not be imminent.
Local media, quoting unidentified sources, reported that the panel won’t rule before the end of the weekend. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the grand jury is still gathering information.
Downtown STL Inc., a civic group that promotes St. Louis businesses, told members in an email Saturday that the grand jury will reconvene Monday, the AP reported. The email did not explain how the group knew the information.
