Daly City police have arrested an 84-year-old man in connection with yesterday's shooting at a medical center.

CBS News reports that the man in custody is Raymond Iwase, who was arrested at his home in Daly City on Wednesday evening, where police also located a gun and ammunition.

The incident, which occurred Wednesday around 3:15 p.m., caused an evacuation of patients and medical staff from the Serramonte Medical-Dental Building on the 1500 block of Southgate Avenue.

Maria Armas, an evacuee from the building, told CBS that a doctor was Iwase's intended target. “The doctor saw the man with the gun and then he ran out and then the shooting was behind him, but luckily it missed him,” she said.

The news station identified Kevin Wong, an internist, as the man Iwase allegedly fired on, and said Iwase was a disgruntled patient.

Although police initially reported that they were unable to locate a weapon in the building, investigators eventually found a bullet fragment in a second-floor hallway.

Iwase was booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of attempted murder Wednesday night. According to a statement from the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, Iwase is declining jailhouse interviews.
