BELTSVILLE, Md. - Three GoFundMe campaigns have been launched to help those impacted by a string of deadly shootings in Maryland.
44-year-old Gladys Tordil was shot and killed on May 5 outside High Point High School in Beltsville, where she was meant to pick up her children. According to investigators, her estranged husband, 62-year-old Eulalio Tordil, followed her in a car to the school's parking lot. He then got out of his vehicle and shot Ms.Tordil multiple times.
FOX 5's Marina Marraco spoke to a witness who said one of the victim's daughters was just feet away from the shooting as it all happened.
According to Chris Mejia, both of Ms. Tordil's daughters, Grace and Nikki, are seniors at High Point High School and are set to attend the University of Maryland Baltimore County and the University of Maryland College Park in the fall. A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help the girls cover the cost of their college tuition in light of their mother's tragic death.
The fund has raised over $19,000 and can be found here.
Before his arrest on May 6, Mr. Tordil is believed to have been involved in two additional deadly shootings.
One of the shootings took place outside Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda. Two men and a woman were wounded, and one later died. The deceased has since been identified as Malcom Winffel, who is described by a relative as having been "an active member of his church and very involved in his children's lives."
The relative launched a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money to cover Winfell's funeral cost, which can be found here. So far, it has raised over $8,000.
An additional campaign was set up Saturday for Claudina Molina who, according to the website, was the third victim in the spree of shootings.
Meli Altamirano, who says she is Molina's daughter, wrote that "anyone who knew her, knows that she was always trying to help everyone around. She was an active member of church, she was the sweetest mother, was always laughing and joking and could find the positive in everything."
Altamirano wrote that funds raised in the campaign will go toward funeral expenses and to support the family Molina leaves behind. The campaign can be found here.
