Police: Former Trump Official Shot By Alleged Carjacker

A former Trump administration official is fighting for his life today after being shot on the street in Washington, D.C. Mike Gill, who served as the chief operating officer for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, was attacked by an alleged carjacker during a Monday crime spree.

The leftist gun control haven just took another step toward earning its reputation as the crime capital of the nation.

Fox5 Washington, D.C. reported Gill is hospitalized in critical condition. He was just blocks from the White House when the terrifying incident occurred.

The Metropolitan Police Department believes the suspect fled on foot after entering Gill’s vehicle and shooting him. Just a short time later the suspect shot and killed the owner of a Chrysler 200 just blocks away.

The outlet reported that the assailant was shot and killed Tuesday morning by two New Carrollton police officers.

Gill is described as a married father of three.

He currently serves as the senior vice president for Capital Markets at the Housing Policy Council. The victim previously was the Republican representative on the D.C. Board of Elections.

His family released a statement after the tragic shooting noting how much he loved his family and three children. “You can’t know Mike without hearing proud stories of each one of his kids, and hearing about his love and respect for his wife, Kristina.”

Despite having some of the most draconian anti-gun laws in the nation, the District of Columbia is one of the country’s hotspots for violent crime.

Police crime statistics show that violent acts surged a staggering 39% in D.C. in 2023. This is despite a trend across the U.S. of a slight decrease in criminal activity after skyrocketing during the COVID pandemic and the violent anti-police riots of 2020.

D.C. saw a 67% increase in robberies last year and an 82% jump in motor vehicle thefts.

But Washington authorities will undoubtedly blame the Second Amendment for this latest crime spree as opposed to the now-deceased suspect. And its notoriously soft-on-crime policies will continue unabated.
