Former Trump official Mike Gill dies after being shot during Washington DC carjacking incident

Former President Trump administration member Mike Gill recently died from injuries he sustained after he was carjacked in Washington, D.C., Fox News has learned.

Gill, who served as chief of staff at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), was sitting in his vehicle on Monday night, when a suspect entered his car and shot him. The incident happened in the 900 block of K Street NW at around 5:45 p.m.

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 DC.
