Former Trump Official Dies after Being Shot during Carjacking

Former Trump administration member Mike Gill, who was recently shot during a carjacking incident in Washington, D.C., has died from his injuries.

The former chief of staff at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) was shot by a suspect while sitting in his vehicle on Monday night.

The Daily Fetched reported:

Gill was rushed to hospital and remained in critical condition after he was shot while picking up his wife just blocks from the White House on K Street in D.C.

Erica Richardson, a spokesperson for the Gill family, told The Daily Wire:

“We can confirm that Mike Gill was the victim of the shooting at the 900 block of K Street Northwest on Monday evening and is in critical condition. Out of respect for the family, we have nothing additional to add at this time.”

The thug who shot Gill is believed to have been involved in at least two carjackings and one attempted Carjacking, leaving one victim dead, according to The Washington Post.

Fox News reported:

Police have identified the suspect as Artell Cunningham, 28. Authorities say that Cunningham tried stealing another vehicle around an hour later, and then approached others and demanded their keys.

One of those people was Alberto Vasquez, Jr., 35, who Cunningham is accused of shooting and killing in a carjacking at 3rd and N Streets Northeast. Cunningham was later shot and killed by law enforcement.

Gill’s wife, Kristina, broke the news of her husband’s death to FOX 5 D.C.

“It is with profound sadness that I wish to inform the community of the passing of my husband, Mike Gill,” Kristina said in a statement.

“His sudden departure has left a void in our lives that can never be filled.”

“In this time of grief, we are grateful for the outpouring of love and support from family, friends, and the community, and extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has reached out to offer condolences and assistance.”

At the time of his death, Gill was working as a senior vice president for Capital Markets at the Housing Policy Council, a nonprofit. He is remembered as a beloved father, husband and friend.

Former CFTC chairman Christopher Giancarlo called Gill “one of the most wonderful, honest, earnest, and open-hearted persons on this earth.”

“His life reflects everything that is good and right and true,” Giancarlo told FOX 5.

“Words cannot express the tragedy of the loss of this fine man, colleague, and cherished friend. He will be sorely missed and long remembered.”

Carjacking incidents in Washington, D.C., have notoriously risen in recent years, prompting frustration and concern from law-abiding residents. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, was carjacked at gunpoint in October.

In November 2023, D.C. police recorded 250 homicides from January through November — the highest numbers the city had seen since 2003. During the same time period, 908 carjackings had been recorded and 77% involved firearms.

In December, a 17-year-old named Devonta Lynch was charged with armed Carjacking after he allegedly stole an FBI agent’s car.

According to the Metropolitan Police Department’s website, 53 carjackings have been reported since Jan. 1, and 53% of the incidents involved guns. Only 10 of the cases have been closed.
