That decision will be revealed any moment now in a case closely watched across this country. The police officer and the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager, Michael brown. Brown's family notified and these images tonight. Police officers in riot gear lining the streets. This protester with a message skraled on her shirt. Another sign asking, where do you stand? Tonight, the National Guard standing by. Schools have been closed through the Thanksgiving holiday. We lead off here with ABC's Steve 0 sun Sam million the scene for us again tonight. Steve, good evening. Reporter: Good evening to you tonight, David. The decision will be announced in just a few hours at the courthouse behind me. Missouri's governor flew into town and is now speaking to cameras, urging families for calm. For many here waiting to hear the results, these grand jurors have decided tonight between two young men, an officer who speaks to the concerns of police on the beat, and a young black teenager who's death in the street now speaks for a movement. The 12 ordinary citizens put in this difficult position, racially representing their county. Nine white jurors, three black jurors. They canceled classes at more than 30 schools in and around Ferguson today and tomorrow, worried that kids getting to class might get caught up in street fighting. Stores that are open looked closed, with their boarded up windows, like they're bracing for a storm. That storm started brewing in the streets. Protest groups over the weekend screaming out against police profiling. The black state highway patrol captain, standing up for police efforts here, still hoping things don't get out of hand.

Including from the person who was the target of this testifying. A defense expert testifying. All of the photographs. Information before there were even reports filed.
