Federal Security Officer Shoots His Wife Dead While She Was Picking Up Kids From High School


By Mail Online

The man who allegedly shot dead his estranged wife while she was picking her children up from school has been identified as a federal security officer.

Police have launched a huge manhunt for Eulalio Tordil, 62, who allegedly gunned down Gladys Tordil, 44, outside High Point High School in Beltsville, Maryland.

The pair were seen arguing outside the school at 4.40pm on Thursday and a man tried to intervene.

Tordil pulled out a handgun and shot the bystander in the shoulder a number of times before fatally shooting the mother, police said.

Cops are hunting down the suspect, who is still believed to be armed.

Tordil is an employee of the Federal Protective Service, which provides security at federal buildings and properties.

Maryland court records show a permanent no-contact order had been issued against him March 17 in a domestic violence case.

Mrs Tordil is believed to be a teacher at nearby Parkdale High School in Riverdale.

She was waiting in the parking lot of High Point High to pick up her two children when she was confronted by her husband.

‘A woman was in process of picking up her children when she was confronted by a man,’ Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski said.

‘An adult bystander saw it becoming heated and tried to intervene as he approached the male.

‘The male produced a handgun and fired at him a number of times, striking him in the shoulder. He is in a stable condition and is expect to survive.

‘The male then turned the weapon on the female and shot her several times.

‘At no point was this an active shooter situation or a barricade inside the school. This appears to be domestic violence. No students were directly involved.’

The alleged gunman fled the scene and police were searching for him last night.
