Police announced at a news conference Friday that 62-year-old Eulalio Tordil had been taken into custody without incident. Tordil is an employee of the Federal Protective Service, which provides security at federal properties. He was put on administrative duties in March after a protective order was issued against him.
The first shooting occurred Thursday at a high school. The second occurred in a mall parking lot Friday morning and the third happened about 30 minutes later at a nearby shopping center.
Documents show Gladys Tordil previously told authorities that Eulalio threatened to harm her if she left him. According to a protective order obtained by the Washington Post, she said he once slapped her so hard that her glasses broke on her face.
