HATE CRIME CONFIRMED: Shooter was an angry Homosexual Activist:
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 FBI’s Washington Field Office, said authorities do not yet know the gunman's motive.
Corkins had been volunteering for about the past six months at The DC Center for the LGBT Community, said David Mariner, executive director of the community center, which is in Northwest Washington. He usually staffed the center's front desk on Saturdays, and his most recent shift was about two weeks ago.
Gunman Shoots Guard Inside Family Research Council Offices
By Meredith Somers | Wednesday, August 15, 2012
A security guard at the Family Research Council was shot in the arm Wednesday morning, D.C. police said.
Police spokesman Araz Alali said a man was in custody and the guard was taken to a hospital with injuries that did not appear life threatening. He said the man entered the lobby of the Christian-based family organization and was confronted by the guard. The man shot the guard and was wrestled to the ground, Officer Alali said.
The motive for the shooting was not known. It occurred about 10:50 a.m. on the 800 block of G Street, in the busy Chinatown area.
Police cordoned off an area on G Street between 8th and 9th streets, in front of the National Portrait Gallery. Several FBI agents huddled near the scene, along with multiple D.C. police officers who were directing traffic in the area.
An FBI spokeswoman said the bureau was handling the investigation because the shooting took place in a government building. Police are also investigating the shooting, and the Family Research Council released a statement on its website.
“Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family,” said Tony Perkins, organization president.
