(NEWSONE.com) — A St. Louis County grand jury has decided to not indict Darren Wilson, a White Ferguson, Mo., police officer, in the death of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown in a shooting that sparked ongoing protests and highlighted America’s deep racial divide.

The 12-member panel—9 White jurors and 3 Black jurors—convened three months ago to decide if there was probable cause to charge Wilson with a crime in the Aug. 9 shooting death of the unarmed 18-year-old. Brown, 18, was unarmed when Wilson encountered him walking in the street with a friend. A scuffle ensued and Brown was shot multiple times. Witness accounts of what happened varied, with some saying they saw Brown raise his hands in surrender before he was gunned down by Wilson.
