District of Columbia police are investigating a shooting at the headquarters of the Family Research Council that injured a security guard Wednesday morning.

The alleged shooter, whose name was not released to media by mid-afternoon, entered the conservative group's downtown Washington building and opened fire.

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier called the guard a hero for subduing the shooter who allegedly expressed disagreement with FRC's views. Investigators have not determined a motive.

"Investigators have not determined a motive."

Let me help here. The shooter made a statement that he disagreed with the organization’s policies before shooting.

This obviously a Hate Crime and case of Domestic Terrorism.

Your welcome.

The astuteness of your observation certainly tells me you aren't a chief. How did someone with your clarity of thought ever get to be a captain? Usually you are relegated to "permanent patrolman" status. Anyone as politically correct as the D.C. chief should simply keep her mouth shut.

Why is the police chief's picture posted? I would rather see the hero's.

This nut job had 100 rounds of ammo and a bag or three of Chick Filet sandwiches. He was there to make a statement. More of what is happening in this crazy country. Washington's policies (or lack of) are resulting in many angry people who are snapping and behaving dangerously. It may only get worse, but it doesn't have to. Ger out and vote in November. And stay safe.
