Man Indicted for Shooting at Conservative Group


WASHINGTON (AP)- A grand jury has indicted a Virginia man accused of shooting and wounding a security guard in the arm at the Washington headquarters of a conservative lobbying group.

Floyd Corkins was indicted Wednesday 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 violent crime.

Charging documents say the 28-year-old man was carrying a handgun, a box of ammunition and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches when he fired on the security guard at the Family Research Council's headquarters.

It wasn't immediately clear why Corkins had the chicken sandwiches.

The lobbying group has supported the president of the Chick-Fil-A fast-food restaurants in his staunch opposition to same-sex marriage.
