The Family Research Council's building manager, Leo Johnson, has been released from the hospital.

Johnson was shot in the arm last week while subduing accused gunman, 28-year-old Floyd Lee Corkins

Corkins posed as an intern applicant to get into the building. Once inside, he reportedly made statements against the FRC and its stand for traditional marriage.

He then pulled the gun on Johnson.

Johnson released a statement after leaving the hospital, expressing his thanks for everyone's support and prayers, but asking for privacy as he heals.

"I am thankfully now out of the hospital. My condition continues to improve although it appears another surgery will be needed," he said. "I want to thank everyone for the support and prayers during my recovery. I thank the media for their interest but ask for their understanding of my family's desire for privacy as I focus on getting better."

Corkins faces assault and gun charges that carry the possibility of decades in prison.
