(UnitedHeadlines.com) – Mike Gill, who worked at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission during the Trump administration, is in critical condition after being shot at 5:45 p.m. Jan. 29 during a carjacking spree not far from the White House on K Street in Washington D.C.
The suspect allegedly shot Gill after entering his car, then fled.
According to the Metropolitan Police Department, two hours later, the same suspect attempted to carjack another person in the same vicinity. The suspect approached two people on the sidewalk 10 minutes later, demanding their vehicle at gunpoint. He allegedly shot one man before he stole his 2016 Chrysler 200, which was later located at a park in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The man died at a local hospital, according to authorities.
Police believe the suspect carjacked the driver of a Toyota Camry after abandoning the Chrysler. He then ordered a rideshare pickup after abandoning the Camry and carjacked the rideshare driver’s Nissan Rogue.
On I-95, the suspect fired shots around 2:30 a.m. at a Maryland State Police trooper who was assisting with a disabled vehicle, according to authorities, who added that nobody was injured. The suspect then shot at a Washington D.C. police cruiser about 30 minutes later, with bullets hitting the driver’s side door. The officer was not injured in the incident and provided responding officers with a description of the suspect’s vehicle.
The suspect was located by state and local authorities early Jan. 30 and was shot and killed by New Carrollton police officers in Prince George’s County.
Besides working for the Trump administration, Gill served three terms as the Republican on the District of Columbia’s Board of Elections after being appointed in 2016. He served in the Trump administration from January 2017 to July 2019, when he served as the chief operating officer of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. He also served as chief of staff to former Commodity Futures Trading Commission Chairman Christopher Giancarlo.
