WASHINGTON (AP) - A Virginia man accused of opening fire inside the headquarters of a conservative Christian lobbying group is due back in court.

Floyd Lee Corkins II has a hearing scheduled for Monday morning in Washington's federal court. He'll appear at 9:30 a.m. before Magistrate Judge Deborah Robinson.

Corkins is charged with shooting and wounding a security guard last month in the lobby of the Family Research Council.

Authorities say Corkins told the guard that he didn't like the group's policies before shooting him.

The guard survived and was able to help restrain Corkins, who authorities say was also carrying sandwiches from Chick-fil-A.

The fast-food chain made headlines over the summer when its president affirmed his opposition to same-sex marriage.
