A statement released on the department’s Facebook page said, "It is with profound sadness that we announce that Prince William County Police Officer Ashley Guindon, one of the officers involved in this evening shooting … has died as a result of her injuries sustained during the incident."
    
The statement said the remaining two officers wounded during the encounter are continuing to be treated for their injuries.
