SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — A Virginia police officer who was shot and killed on her first day on the job is being honored in the western Massachusetts communities where she was born and grew up.

A wake for Officer Ashley Guindon is scheduled for Sunday at the Agawam Funeral Home.

A funeral Mass is scheduled for Monday at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, in Springfield, followed by burial at St. Thomas the Apostle cemetery, in West Springfield.

Guindon, a former Marine Corps reservist, was born in Springfield and lived in Agawam before her family moved to New Hampshire. She graduated from Merrimack High School in 2005.

Guindon was killed Feb. 27 while responding to a domestic argument at a home in Woodbridge, Virginia.

She had been sworn in as a Prince William County police officer the previous day. She was 28.
