Twitchy will monitor and update as new information comes in.
Corkins made a negative comment about the organization before the shooting, but the reference was not specific, one of the law enforcement officials said.
The guard, Leo Johnson, was in stable condition and was being interviewed.
Corkins had been volunteering for about the past 6 months at The DC Center for the LGBT Community, said David Mariner, executive director of the community center, which is in Northwest Washington. He usually staffed the center’s front desk on Saturdays, and his most recent shift was about two weeks ago.
