Last week, one of the bigger stories of the news cycle was a former Trump staffer being shot during a carjacking in downtown D.C.
That staffer, Mike Gill, is now dead.
Gill’s wife announced over the weekend that he had passed away from his injuries related to the carjacking.
Gill served on the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission when Trump was in office.
His wife, Kristina Gill, was clearly heartbroken over his passing.
She stated, “It is with profound sadness that I wish to inform the community of the passing of my husband, Mike Gill.
“His sudden departure has left a void in our lives that can never be filled.”
She added, “Over the course of his remarkable life, Mike brought people together and made them feel included, supported, and loved.
“His heart was evident in everything he did, as demonstrated by his mentorship and deep friendships with those who worked with him professionally.
“Above all, Mike spoke with pride and love about his family, especially our children, Sean, Brian, and Annika.”
Gill is the victim of a trend of violent carjackings that has been running rampant in D.C.
The man who allegedly shot and killed Gill has been identified as Artell Cunningham, 28.
According to the police report, Cunningham got into Gill’s car with Gill already seated inside, shot him, then fled the scene on foot.
He then reportedly did the same thing with another couple, shooting and killing the male victim.
Ed DeMarco, president of the Housing Policy Council, stated, “Mike’s death is also a huge loss for the Housing Policy Council and for the Washington, DC community, which has lost an outstanding citizen, neighbor, co-worker, and friend.”
This particular issue has been a black eye for Democrats, with there even having been an attempt to carjack the vehicle of Secret Service agents assigned to protect Biden’s granddaughter in D.C.
After that happened, the Department vowed to make a concentrated effort to reduce the violent carjackings in D.C., but that has not yet happened.
