PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA., (WWLP) – Hundreds of people gathered to honor a Virginia Police Officer who was shot and killed while responding to a domestic dispute Saturday night.
A police car could be seen parked and covered with flowers in her memory.
Officer Ashley Guindon was sworn into the police force just a day before, Friday night. She was on her first field shift when she and two other officers were called to a residence.
Guindon was the niece of West Springfield Police Detective Thomas Guindon.
Army Staff Sergeant Ronald Hamilton, assigned to the Pentagon, has been accused of killing his wife and Officer Guindon. Hamilton reportedly shot at Guindon and two other officers as they arrived to the residence for a domestic dispute call. The two other officers were shot and injured.
Hamilton is due in court Monday where he faces charges of multiple counts of murder and malicious wounding.
