ST. LOUIS (AP) – Two Chicago men have pleaded guilty in St. Louis to federal charges for their roles in a violent nationwide motorcycle gang.
The U.S. Attorney’s office in St. Louis says Carlyle “Thundercat” Fleming and Allan “Dog” Hunter were part of the Wheels of Soul Outlaw Motorcycle gang. Fleming pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy on Wednesday, and Hunter on Thursday. Both face sentencing in May.
Eighteen alleged gang members from seven states were indicted by a federal grand jury in St. Louis in June.
Fleming admitted trying to kill two people in separate incidents in Chicago in 2009. Both victims survived.
Hunter admitted conspiring to distribute crack cocaine in the Chicago area, conspiring to kill rival gang members in East St. Louis, Ill., and intending to use pipe bombs against rival clubs.
