Awaiting the decision

Ferguson grand jury decision expected later today

Monday afternoon is warm with a few clouds in the Jackson metro area. I'm Howard Ballou with a look at some of the news stories you will see on WLBT.

The Ferguson grand jury decision is expected anytime now and the St. Louis County prosecutor is expected to make the announcement on whether a white police officer will be charged in the deadly shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown on August 9th.

Plus, authorities are searching for a Pike County Community Work Center inmate who was last seen at his work detail at the McComb City Barn around 11:15 a.m. this morning.

And, the Mississippi Highway Patrol is trying to identify a pedestrian struck and killed early Saturday morning in Union County.

In sports, two words: Egg Bowl. A report on preps for that and Jackson State's shocking win over Alcorn.

Clear skies and 59 degrees. Watch your full First Alert Forecast.
