Two men admit to plot to blow up Ferguson police station

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Two St. Louis men have admitted they planned a bomb attack targeting the Ferguson police chief and other officials following the killing last summer of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer.

Olajuwon Davis and Brandon Orlando Baldwin pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony counts of conspiring to use explosives and making false written statements while buying firearms.

Their arrests during a sting investigation came days before St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch announced a grand jury wouldn’t indict Ferguson officer Darren Wilson in the August death of Michael Brown.

Davis and Baldwin admitted they plotted last September through Nov. 21 to obtain explosives that they planned to use against McCulloch, then-Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson and other officers.

None of those potential targets were injured.
