A suspect arrested Sunday with an assault rifle at a Washington, DC pizzeria admitted he had come to investigate an online conspiracy theory, Washington's Metropolitan Police Department said Sunday evening in a statement.
Police have identified him as 28-year-old Edgar Maddison Welch of Salisbury, North Carolina.
"During a post arrest interview this evening, the suspect revealed that he came to the establishment to self-investigate 'Pizza Gate' (a fictitious online conspiracy theory)," the police department said in a statement.

Shotgun? Your article clearly states assault rifle, maybe it was a black shotgun! The idiots in the MSM blame any black gun an assault rifle, which is illegal with all guns in DC. Hence fake news!! Black guns matter!!

It sounds like he had no real thought-out plan and didn't make demands. Seems like potentially a red herring to me
