As you may now know, a rookie female police officer, Ashley Guindon, was murdered in Northern Virginia, but new details are now emerging about the monster who gunned her down.
From Fox News:
The man accused of murdering a Virginia police officer on her first shift is an active-duty Army staff sergeant assigned to the Pentagon.
Ronald W. Hamilton, 32, is an employee at the Joint Staff Support Center, a Defense Information Systems Agency spokesperson confirmed to Fox News. Hamilton has been charged with capital murder of a police officer and first-degree murder for the death of Ashley Guindon, 28, and two counts of malicious wounding of a police officer and two counts of use of a firearm in commission of a felony.
Officials said Hamilton shot and killed Guindon and wounded Officer Jesse Hempen, 31, and Officer David McKeown, 33, when they responded to a domestic disturbance call early Saturday evening. McKeown, a 10-year veteran of the force, was Guindon’s field training officer.
Both Hempen and McKeown remained hospitalized Sunday, though authorities wouldn’t detail the extent of their injuries.
“We are certainly led to believe their recovery will be full; they’re not at risk of life-threatening injuries,” Prince William County Police Chief Steve Hudson said. “But doctors have been very cautious to tell us there’s a long road ahead.”
