Eulalio Tordil to Be Sentenced in Montgomery Co. Over 2016 Shootings

WASHINGTON — After pleading guilty to a shooting spree that left two people dead and two wounded in Montgomery County, a Maryland man will be sentenced on Friday.

As part of a plea deal, Eulalio Tordil of Adelphi admitted to the crimes in exchange for a sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

The May 5, 2016, shootings in Montgomery County resulted in a manhunt that involved more than 100 police officers.

Tordil wounded a woman during a botched carjacking and shot two good Samaritans who came to her aid. One of the men who stepped in to help, Malcom Winffel, died.

As police responded to that scene, Tordil shot and killed Claudina Molina while attempting to steal her SUV outside a Connecticut Avenue Giant Store.

He pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder in April.

Police would later discover that the shooting spree began a day earlier in Prince George’s County when Tordil murdered his estranged wife, Gladys, outside of a school. The former Federal Protective Service officer pleaded guilty to her murder in June and will be sentenced to life without parole Sept. 6, according to the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office.
