VIDEO: Man Charged with Killing Virginia Officer on Her First Day on the Job

Authorities identified the suspect accused of shooting and killing a Prince William County, VA, police officer a day after she was sworn in, and wounding two of her colleagues as they responded to a call about an argument at a northern Virginia home.

Officer Ashley Guindon died from the injuries she sustained in the shooting. A Prince William County official said the alleged shooter’s wife was also killed in the domestic dispute Saturday.

The Prince William County Adult Detention Center confirmed that the suspected gunman, identified as Ronald Hamilton, an Army staff sergeant assigned to the Pentagon, is being held in their facility without bond for the shooting. A court appearance is scheduled for Monday.

Prince William County Commonwealth Attorney Paul Ebert told the Associated Press the gunman was charged with capital murder, first-degree murder, two counts of malicious wounding of a police officer, and three counts of use of a firearm in commission of a felony. Virginia law allows for the death penalty for the murder of a police officer.
