Corkins appeared in federal court on Friday, where his case was continued until December 3 at 9:45 a.m. 

Corkins, who had volunteered at a community center for gay and lesbian people, is accused of shooting and wounding a security guard at the Family Research Council headquarters in downtown Washington.
