WASHINGTON (AP) -- The FBI says a man suspected of wounding a security guard at the Washington headquarters of a Christian lobbying group is being held on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon.
The FBI identified the suspected gunman late Wednesday as 28-year-old Floyd Lee Corkins II, of Herndon, Va.
Police said Corkins entered the lobby of the Family Research Council on Wednesday morning and shot a security guard in the arm. The wounded guard and others were able to restrain Corkins.
A law enforcement official says Corkins made a negative reference about the group's work before opening fire.
Corkins had been volunteering recently at a community center for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
