[Editor’s Note – Let us be clear on this, it seems the shooter wanted to kill people at the FRC because they are Christians.]
As of 12:40 PM Fox News is the only television network reporting the story on the air. Radicalized leftists targeted the Family Research Council because the CEO of Chick-Fil-A gave them a donation [And nothing on the network news other than Fox. UPDATE – Nothing on MSN’s homepage news-feed.]
UPDATE – Shooter carried a Chick-Fil-A bag – LINK. Shooter said to guard, “Don’t shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for.”
UPDATE II – Shooter is an LGBT activist:
The suspect in Wednesday’s shooting at the Washington, D.C. office of the Family Research Council has been identified as Floyd Corkins, 28, of Herndon, Virginia. David Mariner, executive director of The DC Center for the LGBT Community, said Corkins has worked as a volunteer at the center for about the past 6 months, Newser reported.
A security guard at the Family Research Council headquarters in Washington, D.C., was shot in the arm by a gunman who sources said expressed disagreement with the conservative group’s policy positions.
The guard, who was not identified, was conscious after the shooting and was being treated. The shooting occurred in the Chinatown neighborhood Wednesday morning. The gunman was apprehended and was being questioned by the FBI, sources said. Sources said he is in his twenties and may have been posing as an intern.
The suspect “made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard,” a source told Fox News.
Authorities were treating the attack as a case of domestic terrorism.
As of now the Washington Post, Huffington Post, ABC local, and Politico are reporting the shooting online, but are omitting that the shooter shouted comments against the Christian lobbying group. Anyone surprised?
