The man charged Thursday in the shooting of a building manager at the Washington headquarters of the Family Research Council, told the manager "I don't like your politics" before wounding him, according to an affidavit filed in the case on Thursday.
The Family Research Council, a conservative think tank, is strongly opposed to same-sex marriage and abortion. The DC gunman, Floyd Corkins, had recently been volunteering at a Washington gay and lesbian community center.
Mr. Corkins was carrying 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches in his backpack, along with a 9mm handgun and 50 rounds of ammunition, when he entered the building.
Surveillance video showed Corkins pulling out a gun from his backpack and shooting the building manager, Leo Johnson, in the arm. Mr. Johnson, who also doubles as a security guard, wrestled the gun from Corkins and subdued him.
Johnson was unarmed at the time of the shooting and he was not wearing a uniform.
It wasn't immediately clear what the gunman intended to do with the 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches.
The Family Research Council spoke out last month in support of Dan Cathy, president of the Chick-fil-A chain, after Cathy made comments in support of traditional marriage.
"We are very much supportive of the family, the biblical definition of the family unit," said Cathy.
The left went berserk and attacked Mr. Cathy for making a seemingly benign statement in support of traditional marriage.
