Washington • A law enforcement official says a suspected gunman made a negative reference about the work of a conservative Christian lobbying group before shooting a security guard.
The reference was made in a confrontation in the lobby of the Family Research Council in Washington Wednesday morning. The official spoke only on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.
Another law enforcement official identified the suspect as Floyd Corkins II. Authorities were interviewing neighbors in Corkins' neighborhood in Herndon, Va., on Wednesday evening.
