US Police Officer Shot, Killed on First Day on Duty

A police officer in the eastern U.S. state of Virginia was shot and killed Saturday afternoon during her first full day in uniform.

Officer Ashley Guindon and two other officers with the Prince William County police force were responding to a domestic disturbance call in a community located nearly 50 kilometers southwest of Washington when they were shot.

The trio were taken to a hospital where Guindon later died of her injuries. Prosecutor Paul Ebert reported the other two officers were in "OK" condition.

Guindon, who had spent several years serving in the U.S. Marines, was just sworn in as a police officer Friday.

The department posted a picture of Guindon and another newly sworn-in officer with a message that ended with "Be safe!"

Prince William police said the suspect, identified as Ronald Hamilton, a 32-year-old Army staff sergeant assigned to the Pentagon, killed his wife and then ambushed the police officers with rifle shots as they approached his residence.

Ebert said he would pursue a capital murder conviction against Hamilton.
