FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A Grand Jury is expected to decide if there is enough evidence to indict Darren Wilson, the officer who shot Michael Brown.

St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch’s office is continuing to process evidence and says the Grand Jury is planning reviewing the evidence as soon as possible. This comes after many residents, including St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley, have said they are calling for the State Attorney General to assign a special prosecutor to the Michael Brown case.

"I think his objectivity is in question now and I think he is part of the problem," said Dooley. "We remove that problem until we get a solution."

However, McCulloch says he and his team are “trying to keep everyone informed and do it as professionally, openly, and expeditiously as possible.”

McCulloch is encouraging witnesses or anyone with evidence in the Mike Brown shooting to come forward. McCulloch also says a judge will select the Grand Jury and that the jury will be diverse.
