CLAYTON, MO (KTVI)- The grand jury handling the Michael Brown case is set to meet on Friday. Deliberations could start the same day.

FOX 2 has learned that Ferguson Mayor James Knowles and Ferguson Chief of Police Tom Jackson will not participate in anymore media interviews until after the grand jury decision is announced.

Also, 48 hours before the public announcement the prosecutor’s office will inform law enforcement officers.

This will give them time to prepare in case any protests follow the announcement.

Michael Brown’s parents will also learn the grand jury decision before the public. This will give them time to prepare for the media attention.

The prosecutor has also said that he will make all evidence and testimony the grand jury heard public if Officer Wilson is not indicted.
