Guam – While authorities have not released any details regarding the shooting incident in Astumbo Dededo, the victim has been identified as Branden Rosario Ojeda.
Speculation on how Ojeda sustained a gun shot wound during an encounter with authorities have not been confirmed by the Guam Police Department who said the investigation is ongoing.
However, Judiciary of Guam Director of Planning and Communications Shawn Gumataotao did confirm that the Marshals were executing a warrant.
A viewer submitted video shows authorities approaching and then surrounding a black SUV outside the home on Sagan Linahyan Dededo.
In the video, armed Judiciary Marshals appeared to be attempting to gain access to the vehicle ultimately opening the driver’s side door before moving to the opposite side of the vehicle.
Authorities could be heard shouting “Let me see your hands drop the weapon, grab him.” Moments later what appears to be a gun is recovered by marshals and tossed away from the vehicle.
Following the incident PNC was on scene where a family friend identified the shooting victim as Branden Rosario Ojeda. Ojeda was one of four individuals busted last year for drug possession. He was listed as a fugitive wanted by the marshals for possession of a scheduled two controlled substance.
