Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed Ferguson teenager Michael Brown in August, is in talks to resign his position with the force, CNN reported.

Wilson, whose fate is currently being decided by a grand jury, has declared his innocence from the beginning, but is reportedly worried about his fellow officers, a source told CNN. He reportedly said he didn’t want to resign while the grand jury was out because he didn’t want it to appear he was admitting guilt.

CNN said the officer is negotiating with city officials about his resignation. The grand jury is expected to issue a decision soon, and sources close to the situation said Wilson could change his mind if an indictment is issued.

Protests in Ferguson have been escalating as people await the grand jury’s decision. The National Review said that protesters Thursday were shouting outside the police station, "What do we want? Darren Wilson! How do we want him? Dead!"

The Review said police came out of the station and stood in front to barricade the department after protesters blocked traffic. The website published several videos, many containing strong language, showing confrontations between protesters and officers.

ABC News reported that the FBI has sent 100 officers to St. Louis to be available when the grand jury announcement is made.

Brown’s father, Michael Brown Sr., also released a video asking for peace.

"Hurting others and destroying others is not the answer," he said. "No matter what the grand jury decides, I do not want my son's death to be in vain. I want it to lead to incredible change, positive change, change that makes the St. Louis region better for everyone."
