Men Accused of Ferguson Protests Bomb Plot

Two St. Louis men accused of planning bomb attacks during protests in Ferguson over the police killing of an unarmed black teenager have been indicted on federal charges, the US Attorney’s office in St. Louis said Thursday.

Olajuwon Davis and Brandon Orlando Baldwin, both 22, are facing several charges, including conspiracy to use explosives and making false written statements while buying firearms. The men allegedly conspired to obtain explosives, with Davis paying a deposit before both were arrested when they met an undercover agent posing as the seller.

The alleged transaction came less than a week before St. Louis County prosecutors announced that a grand jury would not indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who is white, in the August shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
