Man arrested in medical office shooting was former patient
April 25, 2014, 05:00 AM Bay City News Service

An elderly man who was arrested in connection with a shooting at a medical center in Daly City on Wednesday was a former patient who allegedly fired at one of the doctors working there, police said Thursday.

Raymond Iwase, 84, was arrested following a report of a possible shooting at a medical office building at 1500 Southgate Ave. at about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The reporting party heard a gunshot on the second floor of the building and people were told to evacuate or shelter in place during a search in and around the facility, police said.

No suspect was found during the initial search, but police found bullet fragments in a hallway.

Daly City police Sgt. Harold Rolfes said that Iwase was identified by witnesses at the scene as the alleged shooter.

No motive has immediately been established for the shooting, but Iwase was a former patient, Rolfes said.

Iwase was arrested late Wednesday night at his home in the first block of Plymouth Circle and was booked into county jail on suspicion of attempted murder, police said. Investigators recovered a gun and ammunition at the home.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Thursday that police have until Friday to present the case to prosecutors.

If the case is presented and charged by Friday morning, Iwase could be arraigned in court as soon as Friday afternoon, Wagstaffe said.
