WASHINGTON (AP) — A Virginia man has pleaded guilty in the shooting of a security guard inside the headquarters of a conservative Christian lobbying group.

Floyd Corkins II pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges including assault with intent to kill while armed and an act of terrorism while armed.

Corkins was charged in August with opening fire inside the lobby of the Family Research Council building. A security guard was wounded but wrestled away the gun.
