A mass murder is on the run after shooting three people in Bethesda, Maryland Friday morning. Two of those shooting victims have died from their injuries. Now authorities have connected the shooter to another incident on Thursday in which a person was shot and killed at High Point High School in Prince George’s County.
According to police, 62-year-old Eulalio Tordil began his murder spree by shooting his estranged wife in the parking lot of their children’s school when she went to pick them up on Thursday. Tordil waited for his wife to drive onto school grounds, and then walked up to her while she waited in her SUV. When a bystander walked closer to intervene, Tordil shot him and then unloaded his weapon into his wife’s vehicle, killing her. The bystander survived his wounds. Tordil then fled the scene before police arrived, evading capture.
Friday morning, police received calls about a shooting at Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, as well as reports of a shooting soon after at a Giant grocery store in Aspen Hill, nearly 8 miles from the mall. Three people total were shot in the mall parking lot, one of whom died from their injuries. One woman was also shot and killed outside the grocery store.
**UPDATE 12:02pm PST** Multiple media outlets are now reporting that the shooter, Eulalio Tordil, was a Federal Protective Service/Department of Homeland Security. He was fired in March after allegations of child abuse. Tordill has apparently made multiple threats to commit suicide by cop, meaning there will be even more bloodshed before this is all over.
**UPDATE 12:17pm PST** Eulalio Tordil has been taken into custody.
