wordgg , Because the screw is inset in the bracket, you will probably have to drill it out carefully, with a power drill and metal drill bit of appropriate size till the screw head pops off, then hopefull will be able to grasp what is left with vise grips and turn the remainder out. If possible have a second person hold a vacuum nozzle close to work to catch metal filings. There is also a link below to a guide for stripped screw removal tips. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
