This is absolutely horrifying! Police have arrested Eulalio Tordil, a federal security officer, suspected of embarking on a vicious shooting spree in Maryland. Eulalio allegedly gunned down and killed a total of three people — including his estranged wife. SO scary!
Eulalio Tordil, 62, is now in custody after allegedly going on a horrific killing spree where three people were killed and three were injured. The federal law enforcement officer had been on the run since May 5 after he brutally shot his estranged wife outside of a high school. Police have reason to believe that Eulalio is also responsible for two shootings that occurred on May 6 in separate public places. How awful!
Eulalio is suspected of fatally shooting three people at three places in Maryland — all in less than 24 hours, according to CNN. Luckily the gunmen was FINALLY taken into custody, without incident, on May 6 after police identified the suspect’s car in a parking lot. The parking lot was actually near the supermarket where one of the victims was killed earlier in the day. In fact, all the shootings happened in parking lots!
It all started on the afternoon of May 5 when Eulalio appeared to follow his estranged wife, Gladys Tordil, 44, onto school property as she came to pick up her children, according to police. Eulalio confronted Gladys as she sat in her car, and he proceeded to shoot her multiple times after fleeing the scene. A passerby was also shot as he tried to intervene. Luckily, the good samaritan survived and suffers no life-threatening injuries.
But Eulalio’s scary spree continued into May 6 as Eulalio is suspected to be the shooter who killed a man outside Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland, according to police. A man and woman there were also wounded and the man remains in critical condition. Next, a woman outside a Giant grocery store in the same area was shot and killed. Eulalio was found inside a Dunkin’ Donuts nearby shortly after.
We are so glad police have found and caught Eulalio. What a scary string of events! Our thoughts are with the victims of this tragedy as well as their families.
