Guam - Police and medics are responding to a report of two explosions at the Hilton Resort and Spa in Tumon. Details are few at this time but GPD spokesperson Sergeant Liz Flickenger confirms officers are on the scene and there was a report of a second explosion.

Guam Fire Department Spokesperson Lt. Ed Artero says the first explosion reportedly occurred in a bathroom. Hotel patrons are being evacuated to a parking lot. 

UPDATE: Lt Artero made a correction, saying the explosion was reported near the Tree Bar area, not a restroom as was first reported.
