Police Fired No Shots During Unrest In Ferguson: Chief

No shots were fired by police during violent protests that erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, on Monday night, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said. The announcement that the grand jury in Missouri has declined to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed black teen Michael Brown, sparked protests across the country. Police reported instances of looting, bottles thrown at officers, fires and gunshots in Ferguson, which was rocked by demonstrations following the Aug. 9 shooting. Belmar said 29 people have been arrested so far. Brown's family issued a statement saying they are "profoundly disappointed that the killer of our child will not face the consequence of his actions." They were joined by President Barack Obama and state and local officials in asking that protests remain peaceful. “We are a nation built on the rule of law, so we have to accept this decision was the grand jury’s to make,” Obama said. Wilson thanked his supporters in a statement issued by his attorney, and said he followed his training and the law during the incident.Check back for updates on this breaking news story. Read »

Forced Out: Obama Announces Hagel's Resignation

President Barack Obama announced Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel's resignation at the White House Monday morning. Obama called Hagel "exemplary" and "a great friend of mine" who helped steer the military amid a time of great transition at the Pentagon. Hagel is stepping down amid criticism of the president’s national security team on a series of global issues, including the threat posed by the militant group known as ISIS. Hagel, the only Republican on the president's national security team, has served in the job since February 2013. A successor will be named "in short order," an official said to NBC News, but Hagel will stay in the job until his replacement is confirmed. Read »

Was a Ferguson Grand Jury the Best Option?

As businesses in Ferguson, Missouri, and police around the country brace for the grand jury decision on whether or not to indict the police officer who fatally shot Michael Brown, experts told NBC News that the legal proceedings could have taken place a different way. Robert McCulloch, the prosecuting attorney, could have made the decision to charge Officer Darren Wilson himself. However, McCulloch decided to present the case to a grand jury, and ordered that proceedings be recorded and made public if Wilson was not indicted. But it was announced Sunday that a judge would need to review the evidence that was presented before deciding what portions would be released. A legal expert said the uncertainty that comes with having a grand jury may bring “allegations of conspiracy between the police department and the prosecutor.” The jury has not yet decided whether or not to indict Wilson and are planning to reconvene on Monday, sources told NBC News.
