Fox News should probably be careful about this kind of domestic terrorism also. They are right there on 6th Avenue in what appears to be a very open studio. Compare their “reporting” of this incident to the Washington Post account.
Family Research Council might not have been the only intended victim of last week’s Chick-Fil-A shooting. The alleged lone gunman, Floyd Lee Corkins Jr., only had a note in his pocket with the address on it. That address is shared with Traditional Values Coalition. According to the Washington Post:
Federal authorities have charged Corkins, 28, of Herndon, with assault with intent to kill while armed and interstate transportation of weapons.
A magistrate ordered him held Thursday for psychiatric evaluation and scheduled a detention hearing for this month. His attorney did not respond to interview requests Friday.
Documents filed by prosecutors in the District’s federal court say Corkins walked into the lobby of the Family Research Council, told security guard Leonardo R. Johnson, “I don’t like your politics,” and shot him in the arm during a scuffle. Police said Johnson subdued Corkins.
Court papers say Corkins was armed with a 9mm Sig Sauer handgun and had two magazines of ammunition and an additional 50 rounds in his backpack. Authorities also said he carried 15 sandwiches from Chick-fil-A.
