SEATTLE (AP) — Bail has been set at $200,000 for an 87-year-old man who police say shot and wounded a supervisor at an assisted living home in Stanwood, Wash.

The Snohomish County prosecutor's office has until Thursday to make a charging decision on Frank Arthur Hames, who was arrested for investigation of first-degree assault after the shooting Monday at Josephine Sunset Home.

Court documents say Hames told police he felt bullied by Roger Holbrook so he walked into the man's office and fired a handgun twice, hitting Holbrook once in the stomach before the 57-year-old man was able to wrestle the gun away.

Holbrook was released after treatment at a Seattle hospital.

Friends and relatives of Holbrook say he has dedicated his life to helping the elderly.
