A security guard at the Family Research Council's headquarters in Washington, D.C. is being hailed as a hero after he stopped a gunman posing as an intern, taking a bullet in the arm before wrestling the suspect to the ground.
The gunman entered the lobby of the organization's Chinatown headquarters around 10:45 and expressed disagreement with the conservative group's policy positions, Fox News has learned. When the guard, who was not identified, asked him where he was going, he opened fire, according to police.
The security guard here is a hero, as far as Im concerned, D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. He did his job. The person never made it past the front.
The suspect "made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard," a source told Fox News. WJLA-TV7 reported the suspect was also shot. 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."

A law enforcement official has identified the suspect arrested in Wednesday's shooting as Floyd Corkins II of Herndon, Va. Investigators were interviewing his neighbors.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
I’m just happy that we didn’t get to see more of him in the photo.
Nothing wrong with him that a straight jacket and a padded cell couldn’t take care of.
Without the Internet to keep the MSM “honest”, I doubt we would know any of this.
A filthy scumbag. Shooting decent people. And they are the “hate group”?
those nasty conservatives would never shoot you, buddy. you would not be worth the waste of lead and gunpowder.
Isn’t it interesting the more the left gets, the more angry and violent they become. They have the president on their side, gay marriage in many places, yet they now want to exterminate the church and all conservative groups. As “haters”.
What’s with the red, white, and blue boxers?
Nothing wrong with him that a straight jacket and a padded cell couldnt take care of.
No. There is no indication of Mental illness. Why give him the easy life of a psych hospital? He needs a jail cell.
Just can't figure it out.
COWARD!! Getting ready to shoot others - shows what you stand for! In jail and any dime he has goes to the security officer - let him use his naked but to earn the money in jail!
When is 0bama going to claim him as his son?
Jail cell, hell!
The puke intended to harm innocent people.
He needs a stout rope and an oak tree.
And right there is the extent of Liberal reasoning.
“Those people are so intolerant, they need shot. And if I hit an “innocent”, it’s not about him, it’s just about what the place stands for, therefore I don’t deserve his retaliation.”
And, for the Liberal there’s not one moment of cognitive dissonance in the whole fracture, convoluted thought.
Now, to wait for the tweets praising the man and saying that the organization got what it deserved, along with more condemnation of “hate chicken”.
Where did that second picture come from? It’s frightening.
I was about to post "after a very serious ass kicking"...
But I like your response far better.
Vincent D’Onofrio losing it in Kubrick’s “Full Metal Jacket”.
you’re kidding yourself if you think this clown will get any serious jailtime. He’s headed straight to the psycho ward and this will be blamed on medication.
There no way this sees a criminal trial.
This business is getting out of control..
Full Metal Jacket.
Not a movie for females or the meek.
That second photo looks like the recruit who snapped in boot camp in the movie, “Full Metal Jacket.”
