Official Alton Sterling decision to be made today

The United States Department of Justice-Civil Rights Division, is scheduled to hold a news conference at 1 p.m. today regarding an announcement in the Alton Sterling investigation, WBRZ reports. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards was notified this morning that a decision would come today.

That news conference will be held at the United States Federal Courthouse.

Gov. Edwards and Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome will also have a news conference later today.

The Washington Post reported yesterday that officers involved in the fatal shooting of Sterling last July wouldn’t be charged, but an official announcement hadn’t been made at that time.
