Officers from the Hagatna Precinct Command on Thursday responded to a call reporting a male individual carrying a rifle bag inside the Pentagon Federal Credit Union who appeared to be emotionally distraught.
According to Guam Police Department spokesman Paul S.N. Tapao, this male individual was the same man carrying a rifle bag encountered by police along Father Duenas Drive in Hagatna.
A video that has gone viral online showed responding police officers approaching the man, with one officer managing to retrieve a black bag with a pellet rifle inside.
The male individual, who has not been named by police, then became combative and did not comply with officers attempting to pat him down for any additional weapons.
After several attempts and the continued combative gestures of the man, an officer deployed an electronic control device (Taser) and was successful in detaining the distraught man.
The man was later taken to Guam Behavioral Health and Wellness Center for further evaluation.
