A far left activist went on a shooting rampage at the conservative Family Research Council today.
The suspect was a 28 year-old man from Virginia. He was shouting something about the FRC’s politics and marriage equality.
The Politico reported:
A security guard at the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., was shot Wednesday morning.
The shooting occurred on the 800 block of G Street NW, inside the Christian lobbying organization’s headquarters, FRC president Tony Perkins confirmed in a statement.
“The police are investigating this incident. Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family,” he said.
Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson Officer Araz Alali confirmed to POLITICO that one security guard, an adult male, was shot in the arm at approximately 10:50 a.m. and was conscious and breathing after the shooting. He was transported to a local hospital.
Alali said one suspect is in custody in connection with the shooting and the investigation is ongoing. There is no motive in the case yet, Alali said.
The FRC released a statement on the shooting this afternoon.
