Suspect in Custody After Two Dead, Two Injured in Maryland Shootings

iStock/Thinkstock(BETHESDA, Md.) -- A suspect is in custody after two people were killed in separate shooting incidents in Montgomery County, Maryland, Friday that may be linked to a deadly domestic shooting in the area Thursday.

The suspect, Eulalio Tordil, 62, was taken into custody in the Aspen Hill, Maryland, area, police said.

The Montgomery County Police Department said one person was shot at the Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland, Friday after an argument, and then two people who came to the victim's aid were also shot.

One of the victims has died, another is in critical condition and the third suffered non-life-threatening injuries, Montgomery County police said.

Meanwhile, a woman was killed Friday morning in a shooting at a Giant grocery store in the Aspen Hill area, about 8 miles away from the mall.

The Prince George's County Police Department said on Friday it's "looking into the possibility" that Tordil, accused of shooting and killing his estranged wife Thursday in the parking lot of High Point High School in Beltsville, was also the shooter in Montgomery County Friday morning. Montgomery County police also said they're "investigating a possible link" between Tordil and the two shootings Friday.

The Prince George's County Police said Tordil, a Federal Protective Service employee, followed his estranged wife, Gladys Tordil, to the high school Thursday afternoon when she went to pick up her children. Police say Tordil fatally shot his estranged wife and shot and injured a good Samaritan who came to her aid.

On Tordil's wanted poster from Thursday, authorities noted, “The suspect has made threats to commit suicide by cop.”
