CBN News Reports: A security guard at the Christian lobbying group the Family Research Council is recovering Thursday after being shot in the arm in what authorities have labeled an act of domestic terrorism.
The Wednesday morning incident began when suspected shooter Floyd Corkins, 28, got through FRC’s front door, reportedly made statements opposing FRC’s policies and then shot security guard Leo Johnson.
Despite his injury, Johnson and others tackled the suspect and wrestled him to the floor.
“I would say in this case, the security officer here is a hero, as far as I’m concerned,” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. “He did his job. I mean, the person never made it farther than the front door.” MORE
