BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Authorities say a suspect in three fatal shootings in the Washington, D.C., area has been taken into custody.

Police announced at a news conference Friday that 62-year-old Eulalio Tordil had been taken into custody without incident. Tordil is an employee of the Federal Protective Service, which provides security at federal properties. He was put on administrative duties in March after a protective order was issued against him.

The first shooting occurred Thursday at a high school. The second occurred in a mall parking lot Friday morning and the third happened about 30 minutes later at a nearby shopping center.

    Well just this week Obama decreed that Federal agencies may no longer ask if a potential employee has a felony record.
    See how well that’s working already ?

    How safe do feel knowing a felon may have access to your personal information ? Obama is fine with it.
