The dirty pedophiles who own Comet deserved a good scare, but mostly they deserve a full-bore FBI investigation, assuming the FBI can be trusted, which it probably can’t be.
Anyway, the weird goings on at Comet brought a North Carolina man with a gun to the establishment.
He didn’t come for the pizza.
I’m betting he came to bring down a pedophile ring.
Excerpt from the Washington Post
D.C. Police responding Sunday to a report of a gunman at a popular pizza restaurant in Northwest Washington detained a man armed with an assault rifle, according to a police spokeswoman.
Police Chief Peter Newsham said a lone suspect in his late-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 after the employees and patrons had left. The man, who police say was from Salisbury, North Carolina, has not yet been identified and his motives were not clear.
“We do have employees and guests of the restaurant who, of course, were extremely frightened by this incident,” Newsham said. “At this point we do not believe that it was terrorist related. And it’s unclear right now what the motive is.”
But Comet Ping Pong, a pizza restaurant on Connecticut Avenue with ping-pong tables that is popular with families, has been caught up in a wave of conspiracy theories and fake-news stories that spread during the presidential campaign that have prompted death threats to the restaurant and nearby businesses.
“We’re aware of that and right now we have nothing to tie it into those concerns that have been raised on social media,” Newsham said.
Startled patrons rushed out of the restaurant onto Connecticut Avenue, taking shelter in nearby businesses and remaining locked down for more than an hour.
Vivek Jain, of Potomac, Maryland, was eating lunch inside Banana Leaf, a nearby indian restaurant, when Comet patrons came rushing inside. He said Banana Leaf was locked down for about an hour and a half.
“A bunch of people ran in from Comet and said a man walked in with a gun,” he said.
About 45 minutes later, he said, he saw a man walking backward on on the street with his hands in the air.
“He laid down on Connecticut Avenue and he was immediately picked up by the police and taken away,” he said.
Police said they recovered a handgun in addition to the rifle, and the man may have had an additional weapon in his car. Bomb-sniffing dogs and at least one armored vehicle were present at the scene.
