Authorities filed a criminal complaint Thursday accusing the suspect in the shooting at the Family Research Council of a federal firearms violation and assault with intent to kill, the Justice Department announced.

Corkins is scheduled to appear in court on the charges Thursday afternoon in U.S. District Court in Washington, the Justice Department said in a statement.
