VIDEO: Hero Thwarts Attack at FRC

Join us on our podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at

Last August, Floyd Corkins II entered the lobby of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., and opened fire. He was armed with a loaded-semi-automatic pistol, 100 rounds of ammunition and 15 Chick-fil-A sandwiches.

The FRC released the security footage that reveals building manager Leo Johnson heroically tackling Corkins.

"In an age when it seems heroes are hard to come by, it’s stirring to see a genuine hero in action," FRC President Tony Perkins wrote in an email to supporters. "As [Corkins] drew his gun, Leo courageously charged the attacker into oncoming gunfire. Even after sustaining a direct hit to his forearm, he subdued the attacker and wrestled the gun away from him.

"Leo Johnson’s heroism saved countless lives that day. Now you can see the never-before released security footage that shows just how quickly tragedy was averted. Please share this video with friends, and help pay tribute to a true hero."
