St. Louis police officer Darren Wilson has been well underneath the radar since he fired six shots into unarmed teen Mike Brown, killing him on August 9.

However, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting Wilson came out of hiding this morning to testify in front a grand jury for nearly four hours.

A source with knowledge of the investigation said Wilson was “cooperative” even though his appearance wasn’t mandatory. He also spent time speaking with St. Louis County investigators twice and federal investigators once.

Ed Magee, a spokesman for Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch’s office, refused to comment.

As new tensions and evidence continue to surface in Ferguson involving the Mike Brown shooting, the St. Louis County prosecutor’s office is still uncertain whether or not to press charges against Wilson.

According to a recent report by The Raw Story, Prosecutor McCulloch–a 23-year veteran of his office–has declined to pursue charges against Wilson, due to conflicting witness testimonies. He instead turned the case over to the grand jury.

McCulloch has said he will present every credible witness and piece of viable evidence to grand jurors but protests in Ferguson have still be calling for his replacement in the case.

The deadline for a decision whether to indict Wilson on charges has been extended to January 7, 2015.
