After multiple shootings and a hunt for a suspect that had the Department of Homeland Security on edge, Maryland police arrested a federal officer suspected of the deadly crimes.

Officers arrested 62-year-old Eulalio Tordil, an officer working for the Federal Protective Service, on Friday after three shootings in different locations and a manhunt that ended in an Aspen Hill parking lot. Tordil allegedly shot his estranged wife on Thursday and police had “reason to believe” he was connected to two other shootings on Friday, Fox News reported.

Police said Tordil shot and killed his wife, 44-year-old Gladys Tordil, who was a chemistry teacher, outside of their children’s school. Another man who tried to intervene was also injured but officials said the injuries were not life-threatening, according to Fox.

On Friday morning, there was a report of a shooting at a mall parking lot in Bethesda. Montgomery County Assistant Police Chief Darryl McSwain said a person was shot outside Westfield Montgomery Mall after some kind of confrontation, and two others who tried to help were also shot.

The two men and one woman were rushed to the hospital where one of the men died, Fox reported.

About 30 minutes after this incident, another shooting occurred outside a supermarket in Aspen Hill leaving one woman dead. “It’s tragic we were not able to intervene before other individuals were harmed,” Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski told reporters, according to Fox.

Tordil reportedly ate lunch “calmly” at a Boston Market after the shootings on Friday, with police watching him. After leaving Dunkin’ Donuts, near the supermarket shooting scene, he entered his car and was then dramatically surrounded by police who arrested him, reported Fox.

The Federal Protective Service had put the officer on administrative duties after a civil court issued a protective order filed by his wife in March. Gladys Tordil had claimed her husband had abused one of the children, subjected them to harsh discipline and had slapped her.

After Tordil’s duty weapon, badge, and credentials were taken, the Service placed him on administrative leave, according to Fox.
