Virginia officer slain on 1st shift to be laid to rest

Ashley Guindon was sworn in as an officer on Friday.

WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) – A Virginia police officer shot and killed on her first day on the job is being laid to rest.

Funeral services for Prince William County officer Ashley Guindon are scheduled for Tuesday at Hylton Memorial Chapel in Woodbridge. The viewing is scheduled for 10 a.m. and the funeral service for noon. The service is open to the public, but if there’s an overflow, preference will be given to law enforcement officers.

Guindon was one of three officers shot Saturday responding to a domestic violence call. The other two officers are expected to survive.

A suspect, Ronald Hamilton, is jailed facing a capital murder charge and other counts.

Hamilton’s wife, Crystal Hamilton, was shot and killed Saturday before police arrived.
