A man suspected in a shooting at a Saitama hospital has been arrested after police raided a post office where he had been holed up for hours, with area residents having been asked to evacuate during the tense standoff.

Two men sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting at the hospital in the city of Toda, while two female staff members of the post office in neighboring Warabi were said to be unharmed, with both having exited the building prior to the police raid.

Police entered the building at around 10:20 p.m. and arrested the man, identified as 86-year-old Tsuneo Suzuki.
