Democracy Now: Security Guard Wounded in Shooting at Right-Wing Family Research Council


A security guard at the right-wing Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., was shot and wounded on Wednesday by a man who reportedly disagreed with the group’s views. Police say the shooter opened fire after the security guard confronted him in the lobby of the group’s offices. The suspect, identified as Floyd Corkins, reportedly expressed objections to the Family Research Council’s opposition to LGBT rights. Corkins had volunteered at the D.C. Center, an LGBT community center in Washington. The center quickly joined with more than 40 other LGBT rights groups to denounce the attack, saying: “We utterly reject and condemn such violence.”
