Police rep: Wilson indictment 'unlikely'

(CNN) – Despite the many efforts to keep the peace in Ferguson, once the grand jury decision is revealed, one state official says he's afraid those efforts won't be enough.

"I don't believe, based on what I know, that Officer Wilson will be indicted," said Democratic Missouri State Rep. Jeff Roorda, also the business manager for the St. Louis Police Officers Association.

The decision could come as soon as Friday, and be announced perhaps on Sunday.

"I don't know any more about the forensics and ballistics than anybody else does, but to me, they tell a story that is consistent with Officer Wilson's public statements that it was a kill or be killed situation, and that he acted in self-defense," Roorda said.
