North Dakota Teen Run Down And Killed For Being Republican
An 18-year-old North Dakota teen was killed in a hit-and-run Sunday by a man who believed he was a “republican extremist,” according to multiple reports.
Shannon Brandt, 41, called Foster County Deputies to an alleyway in McHenry around 2:35 a.m. Brandt told authorities that 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson was part of a Republican extremist group and he was afraid they were “coming to get him,” according to the reports.
Ellingson was pronounced dead at Carrington Hospital. Brandt is charged with criminal vehicular homicide and DUI with a $50,000 bail.
