FRC Shooter Charged With Terrorism
Yesterday the man accused of the shooting at Family Research Council headquarters was indicted on new charges of terrorism.
The Justice Department is charging Floyd Lee Corkins, 28, with committing an act of terrorism while armed, attempted murder while armed, aggravated assault while armed and second-degree burglary while armed. The new charges are in addition to an indictment for possessing and transporting a firearm into D.C. for the purpose of committing a violent crime. The government filed those charges against Corkins in August, immediately following the shooting, which wounded a security guard at the conservative Christian group’s headquarters.This is the first time that the federal government has levied charges under DC's Anti-Terrorism Act of 2002.
