[SOURCE] A New York City grand jury is quietly nearing a decision in a case that has drawn comparisons to the police killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.
The panel on Staten Island heard testimony last week from a police officer involved in the chokehold death of Eric Garner. He was believed to be the last witness.
The Staten Island district attorney won't comment on the proceedings that will determine whether the officer will face criminal charges. But an announcement is expected before the end of the year.
