Floyd Lee Corkins II, the 28-year-old man from Herndon, VA, who shot a security guard while storming the headquarters of the Family Research Council, has been indicted.
As reported by the Associated Press:
A grand jury indicted Corkins on a federal charge of interstate transportation of a firearm and ammunition and two District of Columbia offenses: assault with intent to kill while armed and possession of a handgun during a crime of violence.
Charging documents show Corkins was carrying a handgun, a box of ammunition and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches when he opened fire on the security guard at the Family Research Council's headquarters on Aug. 15. The guard, who also served as the building's operations manager, helped to subdue Corkins after being wounded in the arm, authorities said.
Corkins raged against the conservative group as defenders of the Chick-fil-A CEO’s stance on his opposition to gay marriage.
Corkins' parents told investigators that he was a supporter of gay rights, and he said he didn't agree with the FRC's politics before the shooting, according to the documents. It was not clear what he planned to do with the sandwiches.
Corkins is due in court Friday for a preliminary hearing, and the judge has also ordered a psychiatric evaluation to determine his mental state.
According to friends and family, Corkins had volunteered at a community center for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, but was not well-known in Washington's gay community.
He attended a small, conservative Christian high school and later majored in philosophy at George Mason University, although he did not graduate.
