Democrat Man Set Bail After Killing 18-Year-Old Because He Was a ‘Republican Extremist’

A community is mourning the loss of an 18-year-old conservative man from Grace City, North Dakota, who was killed in a deadly hit-and-run by a driver who has declared he ran him over because he was a “Republican extremist.”

Foster County Deputies were called to the scene of the fatal hit-and-run that happened in an alleyway near Johnston Street and Jones Avenue in McHenry, North Dakota.

Court documents say 41-year-old Shannon Brandt called 911 to report that he had hit a pedestrian. Brandt told State Radio that the pedestrian was part of a “Republican extremist group” and that he had a political argument with him. The pedestrian has been identified in a GoFundMe page as 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson.

Valley News Live report:

Ellingson was pronounced dead at a Carrington Hospital. Brandt has been charged with criminal vehicular homicide and DUI.

Court records show a judge set bail at $50,000.
