A grand jury indicted a Virginia man accused of shooting 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.
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.( Thu Aug 16 18:33:07 PDT 2012 $__output )
The lobbying group has supported the president of the Chick-fil-A fast-food restaurants in his staunch opposition to same-sex marriage.
