Trump administration official Mike Gill is critically-ill after being shot during carjacking by suspect who killed another car owner

A Trump administration official is critically ill after being shot during a carjacking in crime-ridden Washington DC, whose perpetrator then killed another victim.

Mike Gill, a married father of three, was shot by the unnamed suspect on K Street NW on Monday around 5:45 p.m. He was picking up his wife, an education advocate, at the time of the incident and was in the car when he was hit.

Gill managed to get out of his car but collapsed shortly afterwards.

He served as chief operating officer of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission during Donald Trump’s time in the White House, the Daily thread reported.

A witness told the washington post that his wife ‘ran to her husband and grabbed his hand’ and asked him what had happened, but got no response.

The victim was wearing a dress shirt and sweater, sprawled out on the sidewalk with one foot still in the passenger side of a car. His right hand jerked as blood pooled around his head,” Yolanda Douglas added.

A spokesperson for Gill said: ‘We can confirm that Mike Gill was the victim of the shooting in the 900 block of K Street Northwest on Monday evening and is in critical condition.

“Out of respect for the family, we have nothing more to add at this time.”

Gill’s work in government dates back to at least 2016, when the city of Washington appointed him to represent the GOP on their Board of Elections.

He also served as the chief of staff to CFTC Chairman Christopher Giancarlo and was chief regulatory reform officer for the commission.

He served as a lawyer at a private firm and worked as the vice president of a trade association before his government.

He was a deputy director of the Bush-Quayle re-election campaign in 1992 and also worked for Republican members of the Senate and House, with a top-level security clearance.

The suspect made a third unsuccessful attempt to carjack a vehicle on Third Street NE before taking the car of a person he shot, in this case fatally.

Family members identified the victim as 35-year-old Alberto Vazquez, according to NBCWashington.

The same suspect then reportedly shot and killed the owner of a Chrysler 200 before stealing the car.

Police officers in New Carrollton, Maryland, a suburb of DC, shot and killed the suspect this morning. He has not yet been named, Fox5DC reported.

D.C. Police Assistant Chief Jeffery Carroll did say that the man had a criminal history and appeared to be going through a mental health crisis at the time.

Carjackings have been a massive problem in the nation’s capital under Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser, nearly doubling to 959 in 2023 alone, per Axios.

The numbers are even starker compared to 2018, when there were only 148 carjackings.

Carjackings have only increased every year in the city since then.
