Elderly man pleads not guilty to trying to kill former doctor
May 16, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Raymond Iwase

An elderly man accused of shooting at his former doctor inside Seton Medical Center because he felt the physician failed to cure his pain was granted $500,000 bail on Thursday for the first time since his arrest last month for premeditated and deliberate attempted murder.

At his arraignment, Raymond Iwase, 84, also pleaded not guilty to that charge and counts of assault with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm. He returns to court July 10 for a preliminary hearing on the charges which can carry up to a life sentence.

Daly City police arrested Iwase April 23 about eight hours after he reportedly entered the medical office building at 1500 Southgate Ave. around 1:30 p.m. and watched occupants on the second floor until the targeted doctor walked into the hallway. Iwase allegedly approached the man and said, “You gave me a shot in the past and you made me sick” before pulling a handgun. The doctor ran and ducked around a corner while the single bullet shot hit the wall about mid-back height.

The incident caused evacuations while the SWAT team searched for the shooter. Iwase apparently had walked from the medical center to his Plymouth Circle home where police later arrested him and recovered a different gun and ammunition.

The doctor did not immediately recall Iwase as a patient but later reviewed his records and noted that he had treated him for pain years earlier. Authorities have not specified the source of that pain.

Police said witnesses at the scene identified Iwase as the suspected gunman.
