A mother was killed and a man was wounded in a shooting outside of High Point High School in Beltsville, Md. Thursday. Friday morning, the search continues for the suspect.

The mother, identified as 44-year-old Gladys Tordil, was previously involved with the shooter, 62-year-old Eulalio Tordil of Metzerott Rd.

Police say Eulalio is an employee of the Federal Protective Service.

Sources tell us Gladys had a protective order against Eulalio, her estranged husband.

Police say the shooting happened around 5 p.m., about two and a half hours after school was let out.

A preliminary investigation reveals that Eulalio followed his estranged wife onto school property this afternoon, while she was picking up her children who attend the school.

Police say the suspect got out of his car and confronted Gladys as she sat in her SUV.

The man who was wounded in the incident was trying to intervene in the domestic dispute, ABC7 reporter Brad Bell tells us. Police say Eulalio shot the Good Samaritan first and then shot his estranged wife multiple times.

The Good Samaritan is said to be in stable condition.

PGPD Chief Hank Stawinski identified the shooter a few hours after the shooting and say they are actively searching for him.

At this time, no firearm has been recovered, but police believe he used a handgun.

Stawinski said some kids saw the shooting, but none were harmed.

Reyes reports that some kids appeared to be visibly shaken as she talked with them. Some took shelter for 30 minutes up to an hour.

Dr. Kevin M. Maxwell, Chief Executive Officer of Prince George's County Public Schools, said the school will open on time Friday. A crisis counseling team will be in place to help. He said the man who tried to intervene and was wounded was a visitor to the school.

After the incident, Prince George's County Public Schools released a statement:
