WP: Man suspected of fatally shooting wife was ordered stripped of gun and badge in March


Washington Post: The man identified as the at-large suspect in the fatal shooting of his estranged wife outside a school Thursday was placed on administrative duties and stripped of his gun and badge from his law enforcement job at the Federal Protective Service in March when a civil court issued a protective order against him for alleged abuse, according to an official with the agency and court documents.

A protective order filed by Gladys Tordil in Prince George’s County District Court alleges that Eulalio Tordil subjected her children to “intense-military-like discipline” and physically abused one child over the course of a decade. The protective order also alleges he threatened to harm his wife if she left him and indicated Tordil had a .40-caliber hand gun, a .45-caliber hand gun, an M-4, a revolver and a “hunting gun” at home.

Police are hunting for Eulalio Tordil, 62, after Gladys Tordil was shot Thursday around 4:40 p.m. in the parking lot of High Point High School.

Prince George’s County police are heading to the scene of a Bethesda mall shooting in Montgomery County Friday and investigating the possibility that the shooter is the suspect they’ve been searching for in connection with last night’s shooting at High Point High School in Beltsville.
