Posted: Updated:

"We received a phone call shortly before 1am this morning of a female being transported to Naval Hospital from what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the upper part of her body," detailed Officer AJ Balajadia, spokesman for the Guam Police Department.

That woman was identified as 37-year-old Melissa Diego. "They were conducting CPR at the time of the transport; she was later pronounced dead at Naval Hospital ," Officer Balajadia said.  

GPD's Criminal Investigation Division was activated and currently conducting a death investigation near Inarajan Middle School this morning. "She was located at the residence; I'm not sure who located her and how we received the phone call. I just received information from our dispatch that she was in transport to the hospital. I have no information on who owns the residence or who the residence belongs to or who was home at the time."

Detectives are currently conducting interviews and have not arrested any suspects.

Officer Balajadia says an autopsy will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death.
