It’s being confirmed by media outlets, but not the FBI.

FBI wouldn't confirm Floyd Corkins as Family Research Council shooter, but NBC and ABC have.

Twitchy will monitor and update as new information comes in.

Update: As Twitchy reported earlier, this seems to be politically motivated. Where did he learn to hate FRC? Evidently, he was a volunteer at an LGBT organization.

Good move, dumbass. “@AP: More on Family Research Council shooting: Police identify suspect as Floyd Corkins II: -SC”

More from Associated Press:

Corkins made a negative comment about the organization before the shooting, but the reference was not specific, one of the law enforcement officials said.

The guard, Leo Johnson, was in stable condition and was being interviewed.

Corkins had been volunteering for about the past 6 months at The DC Center for the LGBT Community, said David Mariner, executive director of the community center, which is in Northwest Washington. He usually staffed the center’s front desk on Saturdays, and his most recent shift was about two weeks ago.
