Police Officer Manuel Aquino was accidentally shot and killed by another officer.
They were at a Tamuning police station when Officer Aquino reportedly approached the other officer, swinging his baton. The other officer drew his pistol and pointed it at Officer Aquino. The weapon discharged during the motion, striking Officer Aquino in the forehead.
The officer who shot Aquino defended himself by declaring he had responded to a potentially deadly threat and therefore reacted as he was trained. He was acquitted and later resigned from the force.
