Mike Brown

The grand jury that is hearing evidence in the Michael Brown shooting death has one Black man and two Black women on the panel, and six White men and three White women.

The Post-Dispatch reported Wednesday that the grand jury had three Black people, but the gender information is new. The gender information was supplied by Paul Fox, director of judicial administration for St. Louis County Circuit Court.

Fox said Judge Carolyn Whittington has scheduled a hearing for Monday morning on a request to release more details about the makeup of the grand jury, including age and hometown or zip code.
