Fake News: Gun Toting Man Self-Investigates PizzaGate with Assault Rifle
DC police arrested a man who allegedly walked through the Comet Ping Pong restaurant in Chevy Chase with a gun on Sunday afternoon.
Apparently the arrest wasn't in relation to firing the gun or threatening anyone.
The man, who police identified Sunday night as Edgar Maddison Welch of Salisbury, North Carolina, entered the pizza restaurant a little before 3 PM and proceeded to walk toward the back room where some patrons were playing table tennis.
This is reported as fact.
Police said Welch pointed his weapon toward a restaurant employee, who was able to flee. Welch then allegedly fired at least one shot into the ground. No injuries were reported.
So who alleged that a at least one shot was fired? One witness reported that no shots were fired.
The few patrons had fled before Welch shot off the lock to an inside door, sending a bullet into a computer tower.
Sworn testimony that Welch had an AR-15 rifle and a pistol:
Sharif Silmi alleges that Welch had a shotgun:
Silmi later falsely accuses Alex Jones of "putting a target on the back" of workers at Comet Ping Pong.
