But Guindon’s first shift took a tragic turn when she and two other officers responded to a domestic disturbance call that weekend – and were greeted with a hail of gunfire.
Guindon was killed and the remaining two officers were wounded. Their conditions are not currently known.
Authorities have just identified the suspect as Ronald Hamilton, an active-duty Army staff sergeant assigned to the Pentagon.
Hamilton is also accused of fatally shooting his wife before police arrived, Kristin Fisher reported.
An 11-year-old boy was found unharmed at the home, said to be in a nice suburb of Woodbridge, Virginia.
Hamilton now faces charges of capital murder, first-degree murder and malicious wounding of a police officer.
Police Chief Steve Hudson said the department is "in very deep mourning” over the tragic incident.
