Guam - John Paul Taijeron, Jr. was indicted by a grand jury on multiple charges including attempted murder as a 1st first degree felony. The Department of Corrections officer was arrested last week after he allegedly fired his duty weapon several times in Malojloj last week.

Court documents stated Taijeron got into an argument with his wife before he walked out of the house and allegedly began shooting his gun in the air, and was later seen allegedly firing three rounds towards police officers. He is being held on a $100,000 bail.

Taijeron also faces charges of aggravated assault, assault on a peace officer, possession of a firearm without an ID card, unlawful discharge of a firearm and official misconduct.
