(CNN)A Virginia police officer was killed and two others wounded when they responded to a call about a domestic-related shooting, authorities said.
The Prince William County Police Department identified the fallen officer as Ashley Guindon, who was sworn in Friday. She was shot Saturday night in Lake Ridge.
A second officer is in critical condition with multiple gunshot wounds while a third officer is stable, according to Corey Stewart, chairman of the board of county supervisors.
A day before the shooting, the department tweeted a photo of Guindon. She started her shift this weekend, it said.
Stewart said when police arrived at the scene, they found a woman killed in connection to the incident. No information was available about the nature of the incident.
Since 1970 and before Saturday, the department has had three officers killed in the line of duty, it said on its website.
Prince William County is about 25 miles south of Washington, D.C..
