Guam - The Guam Police Department is conducting an investigation surrounding the death of a young boy. Guam Fire Department Spokesperson Joey San Nicolas says emergency units responded to a call along Chalan Somnak, located in the Zero Down Subdivision in Yigo at 4:20 this morning.

The boy was found not breathing and had no pulse. San Cicolas says CPR was administered en route to the Guam Memorial Hospital in Tamuning, where a nursing supervisor says the boy was pronounced dead on arrival.  The minor has not yet been identified.

Neighbors and family members would not say much about the incident, confirming only that the boy's body had been found in the jungle area and that police had been there to figure out what happened.

The Guam Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division was activated to investigate the circumstances surrounding the boy's death.  An autopsy is scheduled to be conducted on Tuesday to determine the exact cause of death and whether foul play was involved.
