*As was previously reported, the white police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, a Black teenager, in Ferguson, Mo., was cleared by a grand jury and a federal investigation back in 2014.

Six years later, a new investigation has come to the same conclusion as the first: Darren Wilson will not be charged for his death.

Following a “reexamination” into the case, St. Louis County prosecuting attorney Wesley Bell announced in a press conference Thursday that his office could not find concrete evidence to charge Wilson with murder or manslaughter under Missouri law.

Bell claims that investigators conducted a “five-month review” of the incident “because of the significance of this case to this community and because the family asked.”
