    FERGUSON, Mo. - A grand jury has decided the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown will not face any criminal charges. The grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri was deliberating on whether Police Officer Darren Wilson would be charged in the death of Brown.>>
FERGUSON, Mo. -

In his first interview since hearing he would not face indictment in the death of Michael Brown, officer Darren Wilson says he couldn't have done anything differently in his confrontation with Michael Brown that would've prevented the 18-year-old's death. 

Wilson spoke on Tuesday with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos and said he has a clean conscience, saying, "I know I did my job right." 

Wilson says he felt like it was his duty to chase after Brown following a confrontation at his patrol car. When asked about witness accounts that Brown at one point turned toward Wilson and put his hands up, Wilson responded, "That would be incorrect." 

Wilson has been on administrative leave since August 9, 2014, the day of the shooting. 

Wilson had been with the Ferguson Police Department for less than three years before the shooting. He said Brown's shooting was the first time he had used his gun. 

After deliberation, a grand jury decided Wilson would not face indictment in the death of Brown.
