Police Officer Who Killed 3, Injured Others on Shooting Spree Gets 4x Life


MONTGOMERY Co., Md. (ABC7) — Eulalio Tordil, the former law-enforcement officer who gunned down several people during a two-day shooting spree in Maryland, was sentenced today to four consecutive life terms in prison without the possibility of parole in Montgomery County Friday.

In May 2016, Tordil, a federal protective service officer and former Army reservist, followed his estranged wife, Gladys, to High Point High School in Beltsville, Maryland where she was picking up her two daughters. Beltsville is in Prince George’s County.

Police say Tordil got out of his vehicle and confronted Gladys as she sat in her SUV waiting for her children.

A man, witnessing Tordil and Gladys arguing, tried to intervene. That is when Tordil turned his gun on the Good Samaritan shooting him.

After Tordil shot the man, he turned the gun on his wife, killing her. Gladys was 44 years old.

Tordil’s violent streak trickled into the following day, this time in Montgomery County where he opened fire outside of the Macy’s store at the Westfield Montgomery Mall, killing one man and injuring two other people.

Following the shooting outside of Macy’s, Tordil then drove to a nearby Giant in Aspen Hill where he shot and killed a woman sitting in her car.

Police say Tordil intended on “committing suicide by cop,” but that plan was thwarted when about 100 officers surrounded him outside of a Boston Market restaurant.

In April, Tordil plead guilty to the Montgomery County shootings, which is what he was sentenced for today.

On June 26, he also plead guilty to murdering his wife and wounding the Good Samaritan at High Point High School in Prince George’s County. Tordil has not yet been sentenced for his crimes there.

The state of Maryland does not have the death penalty.
