Shooting at Family Research Council (UPDATE)

The Wall Street Journal has the latest on the shooting of a security guard at the hate group's D.C. headquarters. The paper says "domestic terrorism" is suspected. Read HERE. Twenty-three LGBT groups issued a statement condemning the shooting, which you can read HERE.

UPDATE: According to TPM:
The man who allegedly shot a security officer at the D.C. headquarters of the Family Research Council expressed opposition to the group’s positions on gay marriage and had a Chick-Fil-A bag on him when he entered the building, according to multiple media reports. NBC and ABC7 identified him as 28-year-old Floyd Corkins of Virginia. Fox News obtained photos of the man, apparently taken by a witness, that show the suspect in handcuffs and his bloody shirt fully unbuttoned. As of late Wednesday afternoon, officials with the FBI, the Metropolitan Police Department and the Family Research Council would not confirm the reports that the suspect expressed his displeasure with the FRC’s opposition to gay marriage. Law enforcement officials said the matter was still under investigation and it was too early to speak to the individual’s motivation.
