CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch says the grand jury deciding whether to charge a police officer in the shooting death of an 18-year-old from Ferguson will work until at least late October or mid-November.

McCulloch said Wednesday on a KTRS radio talk show (https://bit.ly/1wLC8iE ) that the grand jury might need to work beyond November to decide the fate of officer Darren Wilson, who shot Michael Brown on Aug. 9.

McCulloch says the grand jury is hearing evidence from more witnesses than normally would be called in similar cases because “this case is so significant.”

The grand jury, which was seated in May, was originally set to end by Sept. 10 but its term was extended until Jan. 7.
