MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md.  — The suspect in the deadly Maryland shooting spree that killed three and injured three others has been indicted.

A Montgomery County grand jury indicted Eulalio Tordil on eight counts, including two murder and attempted murder charges.

He’s accused of killing one person outside Montgomery Mall, and a second outside a Giant in Aspen HIll. He’s also charged with killing his estranged wife at High Point High School in Beltsville.

Gladys Tordil was picking up her children from the school when her estranged husband confronted her in the parking lot, Prince George’s police said. Eulalio Tordil shot a man who attempted to intervene in the shoulder before shooting Gladys Tordil in her SUV and fleeing, police said.

The early hours of the shooting sent parents at the high school into a panic, worried an active shooter was on the campus. Afterward, police and school officials said no students were harmed during the incident and no intruder made it onto school grounds.

Prince George’s County Police Chief Henry P. Stawinski III said at the time that,  police had not recovered a weapon before he was arrested by Montgomery county police.

The incident at the school parking lot was captured on school video and was witnessed by adults and possibly students at the school, Stawinski said.

The schools systems issued a statement at the time saying “all of us at Prince George’s County Public Schools are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Gladys Tordil. Crisis teams were made available at High Point and Parkdale High Schools for all students, and staff.”

The final protective order approved by the judge required Eulalio Tordil to surrender all firearms to law enforcement and refrain from using them, except “when respondent is at work and while he is on work premises.” The order said that “respondent may carry his work-issued fire arm which he will leave at work during non-work hours.”

In short, Tordil faces life in prison.
