First Tour LOD Death
- The Prince William County Police Department swore in Officer Ashley Guindon on Friday, tweeting a photo of her and another new recruit and including a message: "Be safe!"
Twenty-four hours later, on her first day on the street, Guindon, 28, was one of three officers called to respond to a domestic-violence incident in Woodbridge, Virginia.
As they approached the front door of the single-family home on a quiet residential street, Ronald Williams Hamilton, 32, an Army staff sergeant stationed at the Pentagon, started shooting, officials said. Police do not yet know why. But all three officers were shot.
Guindon's wounds were fatal.
We read somewhere that this is the 10th Line of Duty Death by gunfire already this year.
