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.

Lamar Patrick Kemp is the 15 year old boy charged with murdering Democrat Ted Lawson in Michigan.
Media chose to highlight the sweet childlike boy on the left.
But he’s really the violent predator seen on the right.

WILX has more:
A 15-year-old was arrested in connection to the fatal shooting of a secretary for the Ingham County Democratic Party.
On Sunday, Oct. 8, officers with the Lansing Police Department received a call on a shooting at Jenison Avenue near Theodore Street. A 63-year-old man from Lansing was found lying down on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound.
The man was identified as Theodore “Ted” Lawson, 63. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. Lawson was a secretary for the Ingham County Democratic Party.
Another tragedy has claimed the life of a person in a state that many say is being destroyed by liberal policies.
Lansing voted 65% for Democrats in 2022 and voted Democrat in every election since 2020 with the exception of 2016.
In other words, Ted Lawson was likely shot by a kid whose parents voted for HIS party – the party responsible for one of the most dangerous cities in the state. https://t.co/7aJ11JCX9a
