A Herndon man accused of shooting a security guard at the downtown D.C. headquarters of the Family Research Council on Aug. 15 was indicted Wednesday on federal and District charges in the incident, in which he allegedly decried the organization’s political views before pulling out a pistol.
A grand jury indicted Floyd Lee Corkins II, 28, on a federal charge of transporting a firearm and ammunition across state lines and D.C. offenses of assault with intent to kill while armed and possession of a firearm during a violent crime.
Corkins is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
The guard, Leonardo R. Johnson, 46, of the District was shot once in the arm but managed to subdue Corkins and wrestle away his gun in the lobby of the council’s office, in the 800 block of G Street NW, police have said.
Johnson is out of the hospital but not back at work, council spokesman Jeff Ford said.
