Suspect’s bail in Daly City medical center shooting increased to $2 million

The man in custody in connection with a shooting at a Daly City medical center had his bail increased to $2 million Tuesday, according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Raymond Iwase, 84, of Daly City, was in custody on Friday on $500,000 bail.

Iwase faces charges of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the April 23 incident that locked down the medical center for hours, causing an evacuation of patients and staff.

Iwase is alleged to have targeted a doctor that had treated him previously for pain. But the pain had not gone away. Iwase is alleged to have gone to the clinic, armed, and shot at the doctor, but missed. He reportedly said to the doctor, “You gave me a shot in the past and you made me sick.”

During Tuesday's hearing, the doctor told the judge that he was afraid for his life now that Iwase had posted the $500,000 bail and would be out of custody, Wagstaffe said. The firearm in the attack also remains missing.

When asked by the judge where the firearm was, Iwase's attorney could only say that his client is not presently in possession of a firearm, Wagstaffe said.

The judge granted the people's request to increase the bail to $2 million and Iwase was remanded back into custody.

He will be back in court June 10.
