Family Research Council Shooter Pleads Guilty to Domestic Terrorism

Family Research Council Shooter Pleads Guilty to Domestic Terrorism

Today in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., Floyd Lee Corkins pleaded guilty to committing an act of domestic terrorism, the first such conviction under the D.C. law. 

He also pleaded guilty to another D.C. felony, as well as a federal crime of crossing state lines with a firearm to commit a crime. Corkins could now face decades in prison once sentencing is concluded.

On Aug. 15, 2012, Corkins entered the Washington D.C. headquarters of the Family Research Council and opened fire with a handgun, injuring the building’s operations manager. He had 50 rounds of ammunition and seemed intent on committing mass-murder.

Remarkably, although the bullet shattered an arm bone in that manager, Leo Johnson, the injured employee still wrestled Corkins to the ground, disarmed him, and kept him at bay until police and the FBI arrived.
