WASHINGTON -- Federal law enforcement officials and D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department are investigating a Wednesday morning shooting at the offices of the Family Research Council in downtown D.C.
According to multiple media reports, a security guard was shot in the arm at 801 G Street NW, near the Verizon Center in Chinatown. 

The alleged assailant, identified by WRC-TV/NBC4 as 28-year-old Floyd Corkins, of Herndon, Va., was brought into custody. Corkins, according to WRC-TV, parked his car at a Metrorail station in Falls Church, Va., and rode a train downtown.

According to WRC-TV/NBC4's Jackie Bensen, sources say Chick-fil-A promotional materials were found in the suspect's backpack, in addition to "2 loaded 15-round ammo clips."

His weapons were purchased legally in Virginia, the news station reported.

MPD Police Chief Cathy Lanier called the security guard a hero, the Examiner reported. "As far as I'm concerned, the security officer here is a hero," Lanier said, according to the newspaper. "The person never made it past him." 

The security guard was reportedly conscious following the shooting, according to WJLA-TV/ABC7, which said that the guard was able to relay information about the incident to police.
