Terrorism charge filed against suspect in Family Research Council shooting

Correction: In an earlier version of this story we incorrectly reported that the victim, Leo Johnson, was killed. He was shot in the arm, but not fatally wounded.

[Posted Oct. 24, 2012, 2:48 p.m. ET] A man accused of fatally shooting a worker at the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., this summer has been charged with committing an act of terrorism, a U.S. attorney's office said Wednesday.

Floyd Lee Corkins II has been in custody since his arrest in the August 15 shooting that killed building manager Leo Johnson.

    What is this charge based on?
    Neither story gave any facts as to why this charge was levied.

    Good morning @ banasy.
    The Family Research Council itself is considered to be an extremist and a 'Hate Group'.
    These charges do seem to be surprising without details.
