Louisiana man pleads guilty to threatening shooting at D.C. pizzeria

Yusif Jones, 52, faces five years in prison after he pleaded guilty to one count of interstate threatening communications in Louisiana federal court when he will be sentenced on April 12, the office of United States Attorney Stephanie Finley said in a statement. Jones was accused of calling Besta Pizza on Dec. 7 and threatened to “shoot everyone in the place” in order to “save the kids.” The call was traced back to Jones in Shreveport and he was arrested, the statement said. The call was placed three days after Edgar Maddison Welch took a rifle into Comet Ping Pong restaurant down the street from Besta Pizza “to self-investigate” a fake news report known as “Pizza Gate” that it was operating a child abuse ring, police said.
