Fake news story leads to a shooting at a DC pizzeria

A man with an assault rifle was arrested at a Washington, D.C. pizzeria yesterday. The suspect said he came to “self-investigate” PizzaGate, which is a fake conspiracy circulating online. The story claims that D.C.’s Comet Ping Pong restaurant is at the center of a child sex trafficking ring run by Bill and Hillary Clinton. People are also pointing fingers at Michael Flynn, Trump’s pick for national security advisor, for fanning the fake story.
