BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A man accused of threatening to kill Buffalo police officers was indicted Thursday on federal charges. Arthur Jordan pleaded guilty to a weapons charge. The decision by a grand jury could put him in even more trouble.

Jordan is charged with one count of interstate communication of threat to injure. Prosecutors said Jordan made a threatening post on Facebook last month, just after two African-American men were killed by police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota, and around the time five police officers were gunned down in Dallas, Texas. Prosecutors said Jordan posted, “let’s start killing police — let’s see how (they) Like it.”

Jordan will be sentenced on the weapons charge in October. He could get up to 15 years in prison. Jordan’s next court appearance in connection to the alleged threat has not been scheduled yet.
