ALEX JONES AND INFOWARS SUED FOR IDENTIFYING WRONG MAN AS PARKLAND SHOOTER

A man who Alex Jones' InfoWars misidentified as the mass shooter in Parkland, Fla. — even though he had never even been to the state — is suing the conspiracy theory website for $1 million.  

Massachusetts resident Marcel Fontaine, 24, accused the website of "reckless defamation" in a lawsuit filed Monday in a Texas state court. The suit also names Jones' company that owns Infowars and Kit Daniels, author of the story misidentifying Fontaine as the Parkland shooter, as defendants.

It was not Fontaine, but 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, who opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine's Day, killing 17 people and wounding another 17.
