Update: Alleged Discovery Channel HQ gunman ID’d as James Jay Lee; has history of protesting outside building. (see more here)

Yes, "Lee has also conducted protests outside of the Discovery Channel headquarters building in Silver Spring, Md. and was reportedly arrested in February 2008 in connection with a week-long protest he had planned for February 15-23, 2008".
