(BETHESDA, Md.) — A federal police officer in custody, accused of going on a rampage that left his wife and two others dead, has been formally charged with three counts of murder and is expected to appear in court Monday.

 According to police, Federal Protective Service employee Eulalio Tordil, 62, began the shooting spree Thursday when he followed his estranged wife, Gladys Tordil, as she picked up her children at High Point High School in Beltsville in Prince George’s County. Police said Tordil fatally shot her and shot and injured a good Samaritan who rushed to help her.

Tordil also allegedly shot three people Friday at the Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland. One of the victims, identified as Malcolm Winfel, died, another was in critical condition and the third suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Police say after Tordil left the mall, he went to a grocery store in the Aspen Hill area, about eight miles away from the mall, where he shot and killed Claudina Molina, a 65-year-old mother of two.

Tordil was taken into custody in the Aspen Hill, Maryland, area, after both of Friday’s shootings.

Police said Saturday that Tordil did not seem remorseful.
