(AllHipHop News) It has been over three months since unarmed teenager Michael Brown was killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

CNN reports Wilson is in talks to resign his position with the Ferguson police department. Sources told the cable network that Wilson met with city officials about turning in his badge. The sources added that Wilson is not admitting guilt in the investigation into whether he committed a criminal act by killing Brown. Apparently, he claims his pending decision is based on protecting his fellow officers.

A grand jury is currently reviewing evidence and testimony to decide if Wilson should be indicted on criminal charges. The panel is set to meet again on Friday with a public announcement possibly coming as early as Sunday. Missouri Governor Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency as a precautionary order, stating he is concerned that unrest could break out if Wilson is not charged.

Officer Wilson is currently on paid administrative leave. Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson previously said if the grand jury does not return an indictment then Wilson has the legal right to return to the force, but he would still face an internal conduct review and undergo two psychological evaluations.
