Prince William County Police Officer Ashley Guindon died Saturday after she and two other officers were ambushed by a man with a rifle as they were responding to a domestic disturbance, authorities said. She had been sworn in the previous day and was working her first day on the street with her training officer, who was also wounded, police said.
The man suspected of shooting them is Ronald Hamilton, 32, an active duty Army staff sergeant assigned to the Joint Staff Support Center at the Pentagon, an Army spokeswoman told the Associated Press. He is being held without bond on murder and other charges and is scheduled to be arraigned Monday, according to the AP.
