Ronald Hamilton, the U.S. Army sergeant accused of shooting and killing Prince William County police officer Ashely Guindon, wounding two other officers, and killing his wife on Saturday has made statements admitting to the shootings, per an affidavit filed on Monday.

"When officers arrived on the scene they were met by the accused at the front door. The accused fired a rifle from the area of the front door striking three officers," the affidavit stated.

It further went on to read, "The accused made statements to law enforcement officers stating that he shot his wife and the police officers."
