The man accused of shooting a guard at the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the antigay Family Research Council in August will face additional charges, including committing an act of terrorism.

Floyd Corkins is accused of shooting and wounding guard Leo Johnson after telling him he didn't like the FRC's homophobic policies. Now a grand jury added seven D.C. charges -- including the terrorism charge, attempted murder while armed, aggravated assault, second-degree burglary, and three counts of possession of a firearm -- in additional to the federal charges Corkins faces. Corkins will appear in a court on Friday. Read more here.

The FRC quickly turned the summer shooting into a public relations opportunity for the organization; read more about that here.
