PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. - One of two Prince William County officers who was injured in a shooting that claimed the life of a rookie officer is now recovering at home, the department says. Officer Jesse Hempen was released from the hospital last week.
Hempen, 31, is an eight-year veteran of the department. He and Officer David McKeown, a 10-year veteran, were both hurt on February 27 when Ronald Hamilton opened fire on rookie Officer Ashley Guindon, who was killed.
Authorities say Hamilton allegedly also shot and killed his wife, Crystal Hamilton, before the officers arrived at the couple's Woodbridge home.
Officer McKeown continues to recover.
