Floyd Lee Corkins, II – Stamped Indictment

Via Fox News:

A Virginia man opposed to the politics of a conservative lobbying group was indicted Wednesday on charges stemming from the shooting of a security guard at the group’s Washington headquarters.

A grand jury indicted Floyd Lee Corkins II, 28, of Herndon, 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.

The Family Research Council has defended Chick-fil-A since the fast-food chain’s president, Dan Cathy, spoke publicly about 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.

More via Twitchy:

At a press conference the day after the shooting, FRC President Tony Perkins said his organization does not support the “hate crime” label and said Corkin should not be charged with a hate crime.

Federal investigators had said they would investigate the shooter’s motives to determine if domestic terrorism charges were warranted. Corkins was carrying a bag with 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches, and Traditional Values Coalition President Andrea Lafferty says authorities told her Corkins was carrying a note with contact information for her organization also.

Corkins is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.
