NEWPORT BEACH, CA – Police say a doctor has been shot and killed in a doctor’s office in a Southern California medical building and a man is in police custody.

Newport Beach police spokeswoman Kathy Lowe says police received a report at about 2:45 p.m. Monday of six or seven shots fired at the medical office near Hoag Hospital, according to FoxNews.com.

Lowe says officers responding found a man dead from multiple gunshot wounds to the upper torso in a patient examination room. They found the suspect in the same room and took him into custody.

Deputy Chief David McGill tells the Los Angeles Times that the victim was a doctor. His name and relationship to the gunman were not immediately clear.

Lowe says no one else was injured and it appears to be an isolated incident.
