Man guilty in Family Research Council shooting
Wednesday - 2/6/2013, 12:51pm EST
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Virginia man has pleaded guilty in the shooting of a security guard inside the headquarters of a conservative Christian lobbying group.
Floyd Corkins II pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges including assault with intent to kill while armed and an act of terrorism while armed.
Corkins was charged in August with opening fire inside the lobby of the Family Research Council building. A security guard was wounded but wrestled away the gun.
Corkins was carrying ammunition and Chick-fil-A sandwiches in his bag. Prosecutors said Wednesday that Corkins intended to smear the sandwiches in the faces of shooting victims. Chick-fil-A was making headlines at the time because of its president's opposition to gay marriage.
Corkins told the judge that he intended to make a statement against gay rights opponents.
