The officers involved in the shooting in Tamuning on November 3 are now back on duty but the investigation continues.
The investigation into the officer-involved shooting death of Xavier Tedtaotao continues and while the Attorney General’s Office has taken the lead in the case, GPD’s Chief Stephen Ignacio says there are still roughly 60 days left for the administrative investigation and any adverse action to be taken.
Although not cleared of any wrongdoing at this time, the officers involved have been placed back on duty.
“Because of the personnel rules, the maximum amount of administrative leave days have been exhausted and they are back on duty,” GPD Chief Stephen Ignacio said.
The investigation involves four GPD police officers who reportedly opened fire on the vehicle Tedtaotao and a woman were occupying. The officers said the couple was driving a car that accelerated toward them as they approached, which prompted them to fire.
The woman survived and has been interviewed by investigators from the AG’s office.
