Two other officers were injured in the shooting, authorities said. One was in critical condition with multiple gunshot wounds and another officer was stable, according to Corey Stewart, chairman of the board of county supervisors.

A day before the shooting, the department tweeted a photo of Guindon after her swearing in.

Guindon had been an officer before but took some time off, Stewart said.

Authorities did not release additional details on the domestic case. But when police arrived at the scene, they found a woman killed in connection with it, Stewart said.

Before Saturday, the department has had three officers killed in the line of duty since 1970, it said on its website.
