The Prince William County Police Department announced Saturday night that one of the three officers shot responding to a domestic related incident earlier in the evening in Woodbridge, Virginia, has died.
    
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.
    
"We ask for everyone's thoughts and prayers as our department deals with this tragic loss."
    
A suspect, who was not injured in the shooting, is in custody.
    
The incident occurred in around 5:30 p.m. in Woodbridge, about 20 miles southwest of Alexandria.

A Twitter post by the department said Guindon had just been sworn in Friday and was to begin her shift this weekend.
