A man charged with attacking two guards at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception was trying to kill the mother of his daughter, according to court records filed in Washington, D.C.

The records detail the allegations against Dorsey Lee Mack III, 48, who’s charged with assault with intent to kill in the Tuesday attack, WTOP-FM reports.

A female guard told authorities Mack had been threatening to kill her for several days, but “had told her he changed his mind because they have a child in common,” records say.

She said she and a male guard were chatting outside the shrine when Mack attempted to drive into the man, but crashed into her instead, records say. A witness told authorities Mack then made a U-turn and crashed into the woman again before getting out of the car and chasing the other guard.
