Corkins allegedly took a firearm out of his backpack and shot at security guard Leo Johnson, striking him in the arm. Even after being shot, Johnson managed to wrestle the gun away from Corkins and subdue him.

Authorities searched Corkins's backpack and found 15 sandwiches from Chick-Fil-A, a box of 50 rounds of ammunition and two additional magazines.

Managers at two Chick-Fil-A locations in Virginia told TPM they had not been visited by the FBI and did not immediately recall someone purchasing that many sandwiches on Wednesday morning. Corkins allegedly parked his vehicle at the East Falls Church Metro Station and took the Orange line into Washington D.C. The shooting took place around 10:45 a.m., Chick-Fil-A stores open at 5:30 a.m.

Corkins, who volunteered at a center for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered individuals located in D.C.'s U Street neighborhood, is being charged with one count of transporting a firearm across state lines with intent to commit a murder and assault with a deadly weapon.
