Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon vowed that "violence will not be tolerated" as the St. Louis region braces for a grand jury decision on whether to charge a police officer for fatally shooting 18-year-old Michael Brown in the suburb of Ferguson.
Nixon and law enforcement leaders spoke at a news conference at Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop C headquarters in suburban St. Louis.
Nixon said that he was "not convinced" that there would be violence but said that law enforcement in the region have been working "around the clock" to prepare to keep the residents and businesses in the area safe.
