D.C. Police Chief calls "Leo" -- the security guard at the Family Research Council who subdued the armed intruder -- a hero for what he did today:
The man then took out a gun and opened fire on the guard, Lanier said. The guard and others wrestled the man to the ground, disarmed him and waited for police, she said. The guard was then taken to the hospital and is in stable condition, the chief said.
The shooter is in FBI custody and has not yet been charged, authorities said.
“The security guard here is a hero, as far as I’m concerned,” Lanier said. ”He did his job. The person never made it past the front.” -- The Washington Post
