SILVER SPRING, Md. (AP) – A shooting spree that began with a domestic slaying outside a suburban Washington high school ended up provoking memories of the 2002 sniper attacks that left 10 dead.
Three people were killed and three others were wounded in roughly 20 hours before police took Eulalio Tordil into custody on Friday afternoon. Tordil is a federal security officer who was suspended from duty after his estranged wife took out a protective order against him.
Police say Tordil shot and killed his wife and wounded a bystander on Thursday afternoon in the parking lot of a high school.
Detectives worked throughout the night but couldn’t track him down. On Friday, police say Tordil shot three people outside a mall, one of them fatally. Then, police say he killed a woman outside a supermarket.
