Airport subpoenaed in motorcyclist shooting
The Office of the Attorney General issued a subpoena to the A.B. Won Pat Guam International Airport Authority, seeking documents related to the airport’s investigation into a 2016 shooting of an unarmed motorcyclist by an airport officer. The airport has yet to hand over the requested documents, according to Assistant Attorney General Jeremy Kemper.
Kemper told the Superior Court of Guam that the airport was subpoenaed in September, to no avail. Prosecutors want the airport's documents as evidence in the criminal case against airport police officer Vincent Castro. Castro is charged with aggravated assault and reckless conduct in the June 2016 shooting of unarmed motorcyclist Joshua John Untalan Mesa.
The airport in August 2016 cleared Castro and a second officer involved of any wrongdoing. Airport officials said Castro responded with the appropriate use of force when he fired his weapon at Mesa.
