Though the verdict has been given, it has not yet been released to the public. Authorities claim that it will be released within a few hours.

According to Benjamin Crump, the Brown family lawyer, the Browns have been notified of the news and states that they are, “praying for an indictment, and they’re trying to put their faith in the justice system.”

According to NBC News, “Wilson, 28, shot Brown, 18, during a confrontation on the afternoon of Aug. 9. In the days that followed, Ferguson, a once-obscure St. Louis suburb, was rocked by clashes between demonstrators and police with military-style equipment.”

The jury has been going over evidence for 3 months, as rioters and civil rights activists took to the streets. The governor was forced to call a State of Emergency and call in the National Guard, while police and the Brown’s asked rioter to remain calm.

Depending on the verdict, things can go either way in Ferguson Missouri in the coming hours.
