Two people, including one security guard, were shot at the office of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., this morning. The suspect is reportedly in custody.
“The police are investigating this incident,” said FRC President Tony Perkins in a statement on the shooting. “Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family.”
The shooter was also reportedly shot, according to a local news report, which notes that the FBI is at the scene. The suspect is in custody, the FBI told Talking Points Memo.
The Family Research Council is a socially-conservative non-profit that participates in cultural debates about abortion, traditional marriage, and religious liberty.
