JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager in August, is in talks with officials to resign, CNN reports.

The negotiations come at the same time that a grand jury, which has been investigating the case for several months, is expected to decide whether or not to indict him.

Wilson seems confident that he will not face criminal charges from a grand jury, a police union official said Thursday.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post reports that Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson said on Thursday that Wilson is unlikely to return to his job regardless of whether a grand jury decides to indict him.

Wilson has been on paid administrative leave since the shooting.

Jeff Roorda, business manager for the St. Louis Police Officers’ Association, said he met Thursday with the St. Louis police officer, who has remained secluded from the public eye since the Aug. 9 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown that sparked tense and occasionally violent protests and drew national attention.

Wilson has been under a lot of pressure and stress but appeared confident in the outcome of the grand jury investigation, Roorda said.

“It’s fair to say that neither he nor his defense team expect an indictment,” Roorda said, offering his impression of the situation based on the meeting with Wilson.
