ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) – A federal security officer is now facing multiple murder charges in a shooting spree across three Maryland parking lots that left three people dead.

Court records show 62-year-old Eulalio Tordil of Adelphi was formally charged Saturday in Montgomery County with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Tordil had already been charged with first-degree murder in Prince George’s County for the shooting death of his estranged wife, Gladys, in a high-school parking lot Thursday.

Gladys Tordil’s was the first in a string of shootings Thursday and Friday in the Maryland suburbs of Washington. Police say he shot three people, one fatally, in the parking lot of Montgomery Mall in Bethesda Friday, then shot and killed a woman at a shopping center in Aspen Hill.
