Man arrested in shooting at Daly City medical center pleads not guilty

The elderly man arrested in April in connection with a shooting at a Daly City medical center was in court Thursday, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.

Raymond Iwase, 84, of Daly City, pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon in the April 23 incident that locked down the medical center for several hours, causing an evacuation of patients and staff.

According to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Iwase was angry at a doctor who had previously treated him for pain, but the pain had not gone away.

Iwase went to the medical center and is alleged to have shot at the doctor, who was able to run away, unharmed. He was also alleged to have said to the doctor, “You gave me a shot in the past and you made me sick.”

After firing the gun and missing, Iwase is reported to have walked home where he was arrested.

Iwase will return to court July 10 for a preliminary hearing, Wagstaffe said. He remains in custody on $500,000 bail.
