A security guard was shot Wednesday outside of the Washington headquarters of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian activism and lobbying group.
Talking Points Memo’s Ryan Reilly, who is on the scene, reports that a suspect was also shot, and is now in FBI custody.
It is not yet clear if the shooting was politically motivated. Reilly reports that agents from the FBI’s DC Joint Terrorism Task Force and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) are on the scene.
“The police are investigating this incident. Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family.”
WJLA reports that the guard’s wound is not life-threatening, and that he was conscious and breathing while being transported to the hospital.
