BELTSVILLE, MD (WUSA9) – Prince George's County police have identified the man they say shot and killed a woman outside High Point High School in Beltsville as a federal employee. 

According to Prince George's County police, Eulalio Tordil shot and killed his estranged wife Gladys Tordil while she was picking up her children at the high school. 

An investigation found that Eulalio Tordil, 62, followed his estranged wife onto school property. Once they both arrived at the school, police say Eulalio Tordil got out of his car and confronted Gladys Tordil, 44, while she was still in her SUV. 

A male bystander noticed the confrontation and walked to investigate what was happening. Eventually, Eulalio Tordil shot the bystander before shooting his estranged wife multiple times while she sat in her SUV, police say. 

The male bystander, who police did not identify, was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

Eulalio Tordil, of the 1800 block of Metzerott Road in Adelphi, is an employee of the Federal Protective Service. 

No children were harmed or involved in the shooting, according to police. 

School had been dismissed for more than an hour at the time of the shooting. However, several students and parents were at the school for after-school activities, including a baseball game and softball game. The children who were at the school were secured inside the building during the shooting. 

The high school will be open on Friday, according to Prince George's County CEO Kevin Maxwell. 

Anyone with information about Eulalio Tordil's whereabouts is asked to call Prince George's County police at 911.
