Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson in Talks to Resign; Grand Jury Decision Nears

Ferguson, Missouri (CNN) — As a grand jury gets closer to deciding whether or not to indict Officer Darren Wilson, the man who fatally shot Michael Brown is in the final stages of negotiations with Ferguson city officials to resign, sources close to the talks said.

The grand jury was in session Friday, as it has been for weeks. A decision on whether to formally charge Wilson in Brown’s death could come the same day, law enforcement officials have said.

Wilson has maintained he’s done nothing wrong, and the resignation talks have hinged on whether he is indicted, the sources said.

While Wilson has told associates he would resign to help ease pressure and protect his fellow officers, he has expressed concern about resigning while the grand jury was still hearing evidence for fear it would appear he was admitting fault.
