Hero guard shot thwarting attack at Family Research Council HQ

Published August 15, 2012 FoxNews.com

A security guard at the Family Research Council's headquarters in Washington, D.C. is being hailed as a hero after he stopped a gunman posing as an intern, taking a bullet in the arm before wrestling the suspect to the ground.

The gunman, identified as 28-year-old Floyd Lee Corkins II, entered the lobby of the organization's Chinatown headquarters around 10:45 a.m. and expressed disagreement with the conservative group's policy positions, sources tell Fox News.

When the guard, who was not identified, asked him where he was going, he opened fire, according to police.

The security guard here is a hero, as far as Im concerned, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. "He did his job. The person never made it past the front.

The guard, who was not identified, was shot in the arm and was conscious after the shooting and in stable condition. Corkins was being questioned by the FBI, sources said. Sources said he lives in Herndon, Va.

The suspect "made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard," a source told Fox News.

Sources also said the gunman may have been carrying a bag from Chick-fil-A, the embattled fast-food restaurant whose president came under fire from gay activists after he said he did not agree with same-sex marriage.

Sources told Fox News that after guard took away his gun, the suspect said, "Don't shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for."

Authorities were treating the attack as a case of domestic terrorism, although James McJunkin, the head of the FBIs Washington Field Office, said authorities do not yet know the gunman's motive.

We dont know enough about him or his circumstances to determine what his connection is to this group [the research council] or his mental state, or what he was doing or thinking of doing, McJunkin said. So were going to try to sort this all out, pull the evidence together, do all the interviews we can.

The FRC is a conservative nonprofit that seeks to advance "faith, family and freedom in public policy and public opinion," according to its website. The group weighs in on policy, and has often sent representatives to Congress to weigh in on the social effects of policy matters.

The police are investigating this incident," Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said. "Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family.

ABC just ran a segment on this incident, about 30 seconds worth.

they are a social and fiscal conservative group.

the liberal mass murderer was probably going to cut someone's head off and put it in the chick-filet bag...
