The killer was arrested at the scene and identified as Muhamad Naseem, who is thought to have concealed his weapon inside his wheelchair before opening fire on Dr. Perez once inside the medical centre.

“He shot the Spanish doctor with one shot and he was then arrested immediately by the centre’s security before he was able to shoot anyone else,’’ a local police chief said in a statement.
