Guam - The Guam Police Department has now officially classified Monday morning's incident at Yeong's Enterprises in Mangilao as a robbery. GPD first classified it as a shooting because the victim told them he had been shot, but the Guam Memorial Hospital ruled otherwise.

"Doctors at GMH weren't convinced that it was an actual shooting, but that it was consistent with a possible blunt force object to the head only because the ct scan didn't appear to have any bullet fragments," said Office A.J. Balajadia, GPD spokesman.

Neighbors KUAM News spoke with say they did not hear any gunshots. Meanwhile, the victim was treated and released and left for Korea today to seek care for a previous medical condition. As for the suspects they are described as a man and woman possibly Chamorro and were driving a black SUV. If you have any information about this crime please call Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357).
