Protestors gather before Ferguson grand jury announcement

Crowds are assembling around Ferguson, Missouri, in anticipation of the grand jury announcement on whether they will indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting of teenager Michael Brown last August.

Outside of the Ferguson Police Department, more than 100 people have gathered, and close to 75 have blocked traffic three-quarters of a mile north of the station, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. --Catherine Garcia
