WASHINGTON (AP) - The scene was a frightening one: A man walked into the lobby of a political organization, assailed the group's work and pulled a gun and opened fire.
But when it happened Wednesday morning at the downtown Washington headquarters of the Family Research Council, only one person was injured: the security guard. And after being struck in the arm, he helped wrestle the gunman to the floor.
Police are crediting the security guard, Leo Johnson, with thwarting an attack that authorities fear could have turned deadly.
Johnson was in stable condition at an area hospital afterward.
Police and the FBI are investigating why the armed man, identified as 28-year-old Floyd Lee Corkins II of Herndon, Va., opened fire after reportedly making a negative comment about the group's work.
