The Montgomery County Police Department continues to investigate the two Montgomery County shooting incidents that occurred yesterday and involved four victims; two of whom succumbed to their injuries.

As announced previously, the defendant in this case is 62-year-old Eulalio Sevilla TordilHe has been charged in Montgomery County with two counts of first- degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, and four counts of using a firearm in the commission of a felony.

At this point in the investigation, there is no evidence to indicate any relationship between Tordil and any of the victims.  Detectives, after speaking with Tordil, believe that carjacking may have been a potential motive in the shootings.

Detectives applied for and were granted a search warrant for Tordil's vehicle.  A .40 caliber Glock, Model 27, was recovered from his vehicle during the search.  Ballistic analysis confirms that this firearm was used in both the Westfield Montgomery Mall and Aspen Hill shootings.
