HERNDON, Va. (WUSA) -- More details are shedding some light on the accused Family Research Council shooter, Floyd Corkins II. The 28-year-old graduated from GMU six years ago. He holds a teaching license in physical education. He was involved in gay, lesbian bisexual transgender groups on campus and
he volunteers at the DC Center for GLBT
His Facebook page had no picture. It indicates he has 12 friends and likes men.
According to an FBI affidavit, Corkins' parents informed FBI agents that their son has "strong opinions with respect to those he believes do not treat homosexuals in a fair manner."
Corkins lives with his parents in Herndon. His parents told the FBI that their son left the home at 9 Wednesday morning. He allegedly went to a Chik-fil-A before getting on Metro. One employee at the Reston Chik-fil-A tells 9News she remembers a man ordering 15 sandwiches Wednesday morning. But when she told him it would take 15 minutes, the man said he didn't want to wait that long and left.
The restaurant chain was recently embroiled in controversy involving a senior executive who made comments opposing same-sex marriage.
In a statement about the shooting incident the restaurant chain wrote:
"Chick-fil-A has not been contacted by the authorities in relation to the incident at Family Research Council headquarters yesterday. Because it is a police matter and we do not yet know the facts, we would prefer not to speculate on the issue. Our thoughts are with the security guard who was injured in the incident and his family."
