GUAM.   SEPTEMBER 23, 1874.  LÅLO (Barrigada)

Na'masi si Antonio Garrido Pangelinan.  He was walking just in front of Jose Cruz Perez, who was carrying a rifle, pointing downward toward the ground.  The two men were with two others, all four of them spending the day hunting in Lålo, Barrigada.  The brush must have been thick because a branch got caught in the trigger, setting the gun off.  The bullet blew Antonio's foot to bits and he died of that injury not long after.  (P. Aniceto's Chronicle)
