The suspect, Thomas Kadota, had called requesting medical aid for his elderly mother. While ambulance and fire personnel were in the process of treating the patient, Kadota became agitated and stabbed a San Luis Ambulance Emergency Medical Technician in the back. Deputies responded to the residence and were able to evacuate the medical personnel and the patient from the location.
