Daly City shooting suspect back in custody after bail raised
May 22, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Raymond Iwase

An elderly man facing an attempted murder charge for allegedly shooting at his former doctor inside a Daly City medical office last month was remanded into custody Tuesday after a judge increased his bail from $500,000 to $2 million, prosecutors said Wednesday.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Raymond Iwase, 84, of Daly City, was angry with the doctor for pain treatment Iwase received years ago that he said wasn’t effective.

Iwase is also facing a charge of felony assault with a deadly weapon.

Wagstaffe said Iwase went to the medical office at 1500 Southgate Ave. on April 23, located the doctor and starting shooting at him.

The doctor wasn’t injured in the shooting and Iwase was later taken into custody at his home.

Iwase was initially released after posting a $500,000 bond, but the bail amount was raised at Tuesday’s hearing after the doctor said he was in fear about Iwase being out of custody and the fact that the gun used in the shooting is still missing, Wagstaffe said.

Prosecutors said Iwase’s attorney declined to say what happened to the firearm allegedly used in the shooting, but did say Iwase was not presently in possession of the gun.

A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for July 10.
