1:15 p.m.

A federal security officer charged with killing three people, including his estranged wife, in a shooting rampage in a Maryland suburb of the nation’s capital has been ordered held without bond.

Sixty-two-year-old Eulalio Tordil, an employee of the Federal Protective Service, appeared in court by video Monday afternoon in Rockville, Maryland. He faces charges including first-degree murder.

A public defender representing him conceded it wasn’t realistic to ask for Tordil to be released.

Police say the shootings began Thursday when Tordil fatally shot his estranged wife Gladys, a chemistry teacher, in a high school parking lot. A bystander was wounded.

Authorities say the shootings continued Friday at two other parking lots, one outside Montgomery Mall and the other at a shopping center.
