WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) — An Army staff sergeant assigned to the Pentagon was arrested on murder and other charges in the death of a police officer and another person, authorities said Sunday.


Ronald Williams Hamilton, 32, is being held without bond in the Prince William County Adult Detention Center on charges that include murder of a law enforcement officer. He is accused of shooting and killing Officer Ashley Guindon after she answered a domestic violence call at the Hamilton home Saturday evening. Two other officers were hospitalized with injuries.


Hamilton is an active duty Army staff sergeant assigned to the Joint Staff Support Center at the Pentagon, according to Cindy Your, a Defense Information Systems Agency spokeswoman based at Fort Meade, Maryland.


Guindon, 28, had gone through training with the department last year before leaving for personal reasons. She rejoined the department this year and Saturday was her first day on patrol, according to Police Chief Stephan Hudson.


“We were struck by her passion to do this job,” Hudson said at a news conference Sunday. “She did share with us when we rehired her that she felt like she wanted to do this job. She couldn’t get it out of her blood. She clearly had a passion to serve others in a way that went beyond herself.”


Guindon was a former Marine Corps reservist and had a master’s degree in forensic science, according to Hudson. She held a bachelor’s degree in aeronautics with minors in psychology, homeland security and aviation safety from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, the school said.



So where did this guy get his qualifications to work in uniform?
