Shootings at two shopping centers in Washington suburbs killed two people and wounded two others on Friday, leading investigators to consider whether both attacks were committed by a federal police officer suspected of killing his wife a day earlier. Police were seeking Eulalio Sevilla Tordil, 62, an officer with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security who is suspected of killing his wife and shooting a bystander on Thursday in Beltsville, Maryland, in neighboring Prince George's County. The shootings revived memories of the "Beltway sniper" attacks of 2002, when 10 people were killed and three seriously injured during a three-week spree in Washington, Virginia and Maryland.
