Officer Ashley Guindon was shot and killed while responding to a domestic disturbance in the 13000 block of Lashmere Court in the Lake Ridge area.
The male subject at the home murdered his wife and then ambushed the officers with a rifle as they approached the scene. Officer Guindon was fatally wounded and two other officers, including her training officer, were wounded.
The man who shot them was arrested at the scene.
Officer Guindon had been sworn in the previous day and was working her first day on the street with her training officer.

A newly-sworn-in Virginia cop was fatally shot and two other officers were wounded while responding to a domestic related incident, the Prince William County Police Department said late Saturday.

Officer Ashley Guindon died from injuries sustained in the shooting in Woodbridge, the police department said shortly after 10:30 p.m.

Police Sgt. Jonathan Perok said Guindon had been sworn in on Friday and was working her first shift on Saturday when she was killed. In welcoming Guindon and another officer to the force Friday, the department tweeted their photo and said, "be safe!"

"This whole thing is just tragic," Perok said.

Police said in a statement that a suspect was in custody. The statement did not identify the suspect, but Prince William County Commonwealth Attorney Paul Ebert told The Associated Press that he has authorized a capital murder charge, along with other counts, in the case.

The officers were responding to a domestic call when they were shot in Woodbridge, about 20 miles southwest of Washington, D.C.

Neighbors reported hearing several rapid gunshots ring out as young people played outside, NBC Washington reported.

"I can’t believe this is my neighborhood," neighbor Saher Jan told the station.

The two other officers shot were undergoing treatment Saturday night, Perok said. He added that police were investigating what led up to the shooting, which took place at around 5:30 p.m.

"We ask for everyone’s thoughts and prayers as our department deals with this tragic loss," the police department said in a statement announcing Guindon’s death.

Guindon graduated with a bachelor’s degree in aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, Fla. and served in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, according to a press release from the Prince William County Police Department from June 2015, when she graduated from the police basic recruit school.
