Starting Tuesday night, rumors about pipe bombs in the area, surrounding The Korean Memorial, began to spread across Twitter.

"Heard earlier they found pipe bombs at the Korean War Veterans Memorial," wrote one user.

Many of these posts linked back to a tweet by Jack Posobiec, who works for the One America News Network, that has been re-tweeted more than 32,000 times.

In that tweet, Posobiec claimed that there were two crates "filled with pipe bombs discovered" near the memorial, "after suspects spotted in bushes." He also said that "federal assets" were "in pursuit."
