NEWPORT BEACH – A 75-year-old man from Lake Elsinore is in custody on suspicion of shooting and killing a doctor Monday, authorities said.
Stanwood Fred Elkus was taken into custody in the second-floor offices of 520 Superior Ave., where the doctor's offices were located, Newport Beach Police officials said Tuesday morning. Authorities said about a half-dozen shots were fired at about 2:45 p.m. inside the Newport Beach medical offices.
The doctor was identified as Ronald Franklin Gilbert, said Jim Amormino, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Department. The 52-year-old physician worked at the Hoag-affiliated Orange Coast Urology. His 53rd birthday would have been Wednesday.
Newport Beach Police officials have not released any details on a possible motive for the shooting.
