David James Elliott was shot by UND Police Officer Jared Braaten at 12:47 A.M., 2015 in the Altru hospital emergency room parking lot in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

Braaten shot Elliott six times, including three times in the head, because Elliott bumped into Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Sgt. Andy Schneider’s SUV.

But…

Wait…

Abracadabra . . .

According to investigative interviews by the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Bureau Investigation (BCI), Sgt. Schneider was eating at the Grand Forks Air Force Base with GFSO deputy Nathan Moen, while Elliott was being shot.

The BCI investigation into the police shooting of the unarmed man contains impossibilities and absurdities that are wholly unacceptable.

“Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Moen indicated that he and Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider ate lunch at the Grand Forks Air Force Base at approximately 11:55 p.m.,” said BCI special agent Michael J. Ness.

“Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Moen and Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider left the Grand Forks Air Force Base at approximately 12:55 a.m.,” Ness said.

But the egregiousness of the discrepancies is even worse than that.

The BCI interviews record Schneider and Moen were both involved in pursuing Elliott down I-29 in separate vehicles during the same time they were supposedly eating at the GFAB.

Another bizarre entry by Ness said, “Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Moen and Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider went to the Grand Forks Air Force Base in Grand Forks, North Dakota, at approximately 11:00 p.m., to have dinner.”

Dash cam video from Grand Forks Police Department officer Dan Harvala’s squad car captured  during the initial pursuit of David James Elliot, shows Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Sgt. Andy Schneider standing by the side of I-29 near Thompson, North Dakota at 11:09 P.M., February, 27, 2015.

Sgt. Andy Schneider, GFSO, is seen standing on the side of I-29 at 11:09 P.M., February 27, 2015, after the first pursuit of David James Elliott was terminated. Elliott was shot at 12:47 A.M., February 28, 2015 in the emergency room parking lot of Altru hospital by UND police officer Jared Braaten after Elliott bumped into Schneider's SUV. However, BCI interviews of involved officers after the shooting have Schneider eating dinner at the Grand Forks Air Force Base from 11:55 P.M. to 12:55 A.M.

While it is theoretically possible Schneider left the I-29 location following the termination of the first pursuit at 11:09 P.M., and then traveled to the GFAB to eat dinner with Moen; that version coincides with the two men eating at 11:55 P.M. and leaving at 12:55 A.M.

But – Elliott was shot at 12:47 A.M. for bumping into Schneider’s vehicle in the Altru parking lot – so it’s impossible.

Thousands of pills were located in Elliott’s vehicle when the BCI executed a search warrant.

No criminal charges were ever brought against Elliott or any other person regarding those drugs.

Write Into Action is investigating the possibility that Elliott had a passenger with him during the first pursuit.

Dash-cam video from a Grand Forks Police Department (GFPD) vehicle proves the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) is covering up a murder plot.

Video of the David James Elliott pursuit, published by WDAZ, shows law enforcement is collectively lying about the events that occurred on February 27, 2015.

BCI investigators and dash-cam video place Grand Forks Sheriff’s Deputy Any Schneider at I-29 near Thompson, North Dakota at the moment the pursuit is called off at approximately 11:08 P.M.

However, the BCI also tries to place Schneider at the Grand Force Air Force Base, eating dinner at 11:00 P.M.

The secret was exposed after a Write Into Action investigation using the very short segments of video that was released to the public; released only after Write Into Action (Timothy Charles Holmseth) made a written request for the video from the GFPD.

Write Into Action compared the video timeline to the events timeline in the BCI investigative records.

WDAZ screenshot Elliott pursuit termination

GFSO Deputy Andy Schneider

At 11:07:57 P.M. in the officer cam video, the WDAZ reporter says, “the chase is called off near Thompson”.

At the same time (11:07:57 P.M.) in the published video, an officer can be heard saying over the police radio, “Since your terminating you don’t want me to deploy…”

The officer heard referring to ‘deploying’ is Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Deputy Andy Schneider. He is referring to his plan to deploy spike-strips on I-29 South, one mile north of Thompson, against David Elliott.

Here is how we know that.

This is what Schneider told BCI investigators during the BCI investigation into the shooting of David Elliott in the Altru Hospital parking lot that occurred at the end of the hours long pursuit.

  1. Schneider told BCI investigators he believed the pursuit occurred between 10:45 – 11:00 P.M.
  1. Schneider told BCI investigators he was West of Thompson, North Dakota and heading to the Grand Forks Air Force base to have dinner when he learned of the pursuit.
  1. Schneider told BCI investigators he positioned his vehicle at a crossover one mile north of the Thompson, North Dakota exit.
  1. Schneider told BCI investigators he deployed his spike-strips.
  1. Schneider told BCI investigators GFPD Sgt. Mark Ellingson terminated the pursuit.

The BCI investigator reports Schneider did not have his emergency lights activated and walked into the ditch to avoid getting run into by David Elliott.

The aforementioned proves beyond all doubt Deputy Schneider was at the scene.

SCHNEIDER’S PRESENCE AT PURSUIT NOT MENTIONED IN GFSO AFFIDAVIT TO COURT

The Grand Forks County Sheriff’s Office attempted to conceal Schneider’s whereabouts and activities by omitting his presence near Thompson, North Dakota in an Affidavit filed with the court.

Now watch this.

In the very same report that the BCI investigators relays 1-5 above, he says, “Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Moen and Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider went to the Grand Forks Air Force Base in Grand Forks, North Dakota, at approximately 11:00 p.m., to have dinner.”

DID YOU CATCH THAT, FOLKS?

We know from the video that Schneider was at I-29 at 11:07:57 P.M. putting out spike strips.

SOURCE FOR WRITE INTO ACTION ANALYSIS

In regard to the first (1st) pursuit with DAVID ELLIOTT, Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider said he was west of Thompson, North Dakota, when it began. Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider believed that it occurred between 10:45 p.m., to 11:00 p.m., and he was heading towards the Grand Forks Air Force Base, Grand Forks, North Dakota, for dinner. Grand Forks Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Andy Schneider overheard via the radio that Grand Forks Police Department Officer Dan Harvala had a pursuit that began in Grand Forks, North Dakota, but was now southbound on Interstate 29 (I-29).

“No transcription requests, or requests for additional video footage to be processed, have been made for video or 911 records,”

– Lt. Derik Zimmel / GFPD

Law enforcement in North Dakota is attempting to cover-up the true facts and circumstances that led to the shooting of an unarmed man in a hospital parking lot.

The public is yet to learn why David James Elliott, a man with no criminal record, abruptly fled from police in February, 2015, before being shot three times in the head.

Despite availability, no request has been made for the critical 911 records of Elliott’s call to PSAP, which would shed light on the events, facts, and circumstances that ended when Elliott was shot outside the Emergency Room parking lot of Altru hospital in Grand Forks.

On February, 8, 2016, WDAZ, Forum Communications, Inc. broadcast select video featuring short clips from the chase and shooting.

Responding to a request for information by Write Into Action regarding records, Lt. Derik Zimmel, Grand Forks Police Department (GFPD) said “In-car video for primary pursuing vehicles for both pursuits in their entirety” was requested by the media.

Zimmel’s reference to “both pursuits” is based upon an assertion that two separate pursuits took place on the night in question.

The deceptive story being given to the public is that the initial David Elliott pursuit was cancelled, and then, re-initiated, over an hour later, when Elliott returned to Grand Forks city limits.

That’s false.

“MULTIPLE COUNTIES”

“The UND police officer was assisting in a pursuit that had covered multiple counties as well as the City of Grand Forks,” said UND Police Chief Eric Plummer during a press conference. [quote can be heard at the 20 second marker of the following video].

Plummer refers to ONE pursuit.

Either GFPD Chief Mark Nelson’s public information officer Lt. Derik Zimmel is lying; or UND Police Chief Eric Plummer is lying.

The facts show Plummer is telling the truth.

The pursuit was on-going after law enforcement claims they stopped chasing Elliott on I-29 South near Thompson, North Dakota.

But law enforcement does not want the public to know that.

Public record already in existence establish that Grand Forks County Sheriff’s and North Dakota Highway Patrol were pursuing Elliott on I-29 South from the Oslo, Minnesota interchange to Grand Forks, which is in the opposite direction of Thompson.

The details of the mysterious events occurring during that time window are contained in the 911 records.

The reason for calling it ‘two separate pursuits’ is to avoid discussing the activities of the Grand Forks Sheriff’s deputies and North Dakota Highway Patrol that were likely attempting kill Elliott.

The following excerpt is from an Opinion Letter authored by Grand Forks County States Attorney David T. Jones:

David Elliott Jones Narrative Quote

According to States Attorney Jones, Elliott telephoned 911 after the pursuit began. The 911 records of Elliott’s 911 call will reveal where he was located and what was occurring around him.

“No transcription requests, or requests for additional video footage to be processed, have been made for video or 911 records,” said Lt. Derik Zimmel, GFPD.

Write Into Action has determined a collective effort is being made to conceal from the public, just exactly what occurred after police claim they stopped chasing Elliott near Thompson, North Dakota; and over an hour later when they admit coming back into contact with Elliott near the Oslo, Minnesota I-29 interchange, which is in the opposite direction.

The truth is in the 911 records.
