The shooter of an unarmed security guard at the Family Research Council last summer in Washington, D.C. told police he targeted the organization because it was “anti- gay” and had wanted to kill "as many people as possible," according to the Washington Post.

Floyd Lee Corkins II, 28, admitted to the shooting Wednesday in federal court and pleaded guilty to firearms charges, assault with intent to kill, and committing an act of terror.

According to the Post, Corkins admitted going to the FRC to kill as many as possible and to "smother Chik-Fil-A sandwiches in their faces" because of his anger over the head of the fast food chain's recent outspoken opposition to same-sex-marriage.

He also acknowledged that he intended to kill Leonardo Johnson, a building manager and unarmed security guard, who was shot in a struggle with Corkins but was able to subdue him until police arrived at the FRC headquarters.

Police said a search of Corkins on the scene revealed a pistol, two fully-loaded magazines containing 15 rounds each, a transit card, and a list of four organizations, beginning with the FRC, all of which advocate socially-conservative views.

The Post noted that police at the scene on the day of shooting heard Corkins say, "I don't like these people and I don't like what they stand for."
