Guam - The Department of Corrections has launched an internal affairs investigation into Wednesday night's shooting incident in Malojloj. Agency spokesperson Lieutenant Antone Aguon confirms the gun John Paul Taijeron, Jr. was firing was a duty weapon.

Aguon told KUAM News, "In the four years that Officer Taijeron has been with us, we've had no problems with him; he's a member of our Special Response Team, which speaks for itself because not everybody's able to get on that team, and its just one of things that happen that we must now use our processes and go through the whole process."

He also said, "We are going to look on our side what led up to it and do our own internal affairs investigation and based on the findings, then we'll take whatever appropriate action is necessary or whatever corrective action we need to do."

In the meantime, Aguon says DepCor director Jose San Agustin continues to meet with his staff, stressing the importance that officers either on- or off-duty must maintain good conduct and are always held to the highest standards.
