Just another typical day for the MAGA Republicans, as a QAnon-obsessed father killed his wife and the family dog before being shot dead by police in a small Michigan town. The 53-year-old man tried to kill one of his daughters, too, but she survived after being shot in the back and the legs. Via Yahoo:

A Michigan man’s obsession with the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory culminated in a Sunday incident in which he murdered his wife and badly injured one of his children, his daughter told The Daily Beast.

Igor Lanis, a 53-year-old resident of the Michigan city of Walled Lake, was killed Sunday by police after he started shooting at them with a shotgun, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office.

Inside Lanis’ house, police found Lanis’ wife, Tina Lanis, dead after being shot four times with a handgun. Lanis also shot his daughter Rachel, 25, in the back and legs with a shotgun during the attack, but she managed to call police and survived. Lanis also killed the family dog, shooting it multiple times.

According to the surviving other daughter, a 21-year-old woman who wasn’t home at the time, the dad started going down rabbit holes after Trump lost the 2020 election, following wack job freaks like Alex Jones and “consuming huge amounts of online videos.” More:

He insisted that family members watch conspiracy theories videos about the 5G cell towers, vaccines, and the election. He started to believe that some world leaders were in fact alien lizard-people in disguise, a fringe conspiracy theory even among QAnon supporters. Rebecca Lanis said family members tried to pull her father out of his beliefs, but arguing with him was “pointless.”
