A doctor was fatally shot and the suspected gunman was in custody on Monday after a shooting at a doctor's office in Newport Beach, police said.

The shooting happened at 2:45 p.m. in a second-floor patient room at 520 Superior Ave., said Kathy Lowe, of the the Newport Beach Police Department.

Lowe said police received a call from someone reporting hearing up to seven shots fired in the medical office. Police arrived and found both the gunman and the shooting victim in the office.

The gunman, a man in his 70s whose name was not immediately released, was arrested without a struggle. An employee who works in the building said the gunman had a scheduled appointment with the slain doctor.

Police did not identify the person who was shot, but witnesses told NBC4 that the man was possibly a urologist.
