Wilson's shooting of unarmed teen Michael Brown is being investigated by a St. Louis County grand jury that will decide whether the officer will face charges. He is on paid administrative leave.
A six-year veteran of the Ferguson Police Department, Wilson has not been seen in public since Brown's killing set off racial tensions in the St. Louis suburb and beyond.
