Did You Miss This Over The Weekend? Michigan Democrat Shot Dead by 15-Year-Old….


Last Sunday, a famous Democrat was killed in another horrific incident in the state of Michigan.

On October 8th, Ted Lawson, secretary of the Ingham County Democratic Party, was shot and died.

The 63-year-old was canvassing when a 15-year-old allegedly approached him and demanded money before shooting him.

After Lansing Police arrived to a 911 call regarding the incident, Lawson was pronounced deceased.

According to authorities, the juvenile suspect has been arrested and will be charged as an adult.

CBS reported on the fatal shooting:

It was on Lansing’s north side where Ted Lawson, a canvasser and the secretary for the Ingham County Democratic Party, was shot and killed over the weekend.

The 63-year-old was passionate about advancing his party, and those who knew him personally tell CBS News Detroit his absence is a significant loss to his community.

“He was very close to his house, and then it’s my understanding is that a 15-year-old asked him for money and then shot him,” said Brian Jackson, chair of the Ingham County Democratic Party. “So it’s not really tied in any way to the candidate or what he was doing but being one of those random acts which is just such a tragedy, and you know there’s too many guns.”

Ingham County Prosecutor John Dewane confirmed Lansing police have the suspect, a 15-year-old boy, in custody. The Lansing teen will be charged as an adult with open murder in the shooting death.
