A Virginia cop was fatally shot her first day on the job Saturday.
Three Prince William County officers responded to a domestic dispute Saturday evening when a shooting broke out that injured two officers and killed one, NBC News reports. Officer Ashley Guindon was killed on her first shift after being sworn in Friday.
“It is with profound sadness that we announce that Prince William County Police Officer Ashley Guindon, one of the officers involved in this evening shooting on Lashmere Ct, has died as a result of her injuries sustained during the incident,” the department said on Facebook. “The investigation into the shooting is still underway and the remaining two officers wounded during the encounter are continuing to be treated for their injuries.”
A civilian woman was reportedly killed in the domestic dispute before police arrived. A suspect has been arrested and could face a capital murder charge.
