(Associated Press) A Virginia man accused of shooting a security guard inside the headquarters of a conservative Christian lobbying group was indicted on a local terrorism charge, marking the first time in a decade that a person has been prosecuted under the statute, prosecutors said Wednesday.

The new charge is for Floyd Lee Corkins II, who was arrested in August and charged with opening fire inside the lobby of the Family Research Council building in downtown Washington.

Authorities said Corkins was carrying a backpack containing ammunition and Chick-fil-A sandwiches when he entered the group’s headquarters, saying words to the effect of, “I don’t like your politics,” before shooting the guard, Leonardo Johnson, in the arm.
