DC Police responded to a call at 2:59 p.m. ET from a witness who said they saw a man armed with an assault rifle had entered Comet Ping Pong, a bar and music venue in the upscale Friendship Heights neighborhood of Northwest Washington, department sources said.
DC Police Chief Peter Newsham told reporters that the suspect fired more than one shot into the ground while inside the bar.
Shortly before 4 pm, police took the man into custody after he left the bar.
Police are currently investigating phone calls and death threats against the bar, but it was not immediately clear whether there was a connection between Sunday’s arrest and the conspiracy theory.
Startled patrons rushed out of the restaurant onto Connecticut Avenue, taking shelter in nearby businesses and remaining locked down for more than an hour.
Newsham said the license plates on the suspect’s car were not from D.C., Maryland or Virginia. Police said the man may have had an additional weapon, possibly handgun, in his car.
D.C. police Chief Peter Newsham said a lone suspect in his 20s walked into the front door of Comet Ping Pong with an assault rifle. Newsham said it appeared as if the suspect may have fired one or multiple shots into the ground. The man has not yet been identified and his motives were not clear
Other nearby businesses have received threats as well, according to police. On Sunday, after spending more than an hour on lockdown with employees and customers, Matt Carr, the owner of the Little Red Fox market and coffee shop, said his business started getting threats last weekend. They got 30-40 calls before they stopped answering calls from blocked numbers, he said. “One person said he wanted to line us up in front of a firing squad.”
It was all tied to the Comet Ping Pong accusations online, he said. “There’s some old painted-over symbol on the marquee that they claim is an international symbol of pedophilia, and that there are underground tunnels….”
“There’s some video on YouTube that has almost 100,000 views and talks about me, the owner of the Little Red Fox, by name.
“This was our worst fear,” he said, “that someone would read all this and come to the block with a gun. And today it happened.”

False headline as usual.
No motives determined yet.
So consistently dishonest.
Oh that's right, if if a bad 'story' comes out that includes Obama, the DNC, George Soros, and/or the Clinton's,
I wonder, how many threads have you written condemning the violent actions of the BLM Movement, and how absurd their motivations for such ends really are?
Well guess what, the same logic would apply here, I assume. Following the BLM logic, if the MSM isn't given voice to atrocious acts against the weak, then his actions are warranted to such a degree the MSM should be borderline applauding his effort down there.
Except it's not a "bad story" at all, it's complete and utter horsesh# that was in fact created and popularized by the Trump troll network. Are you disputing that? It's awful telling that you list Obama, the DNC, George Soros and the Clintons. Is there any person that you intensely dislike who isn't part of #PizzaGate by your estimation? Hallmark of a witch hunt.
