Former NIH doctor will undergo psychological evaluation
by Seth Conners
According to District Attorney Tom Hardy, former Northern Inyo Hospital employee Dr. Anthony Schapera was appointed a psychologist on June 30th to determine whether he understands the proceedings against him, and to determine if he can cooperate in his defense.
The Bishop Police Department recently developed information showing that Schapera was in violation of a previous gun and ammunition restraining order. The subsequent search by city and county law enforcement officers led to the seizure of various types of guns and ammunition. Dr. Schapera was arrested and charged with manufacturing/importing/possessing/and sales of a zip gun…commission of a crime while on bail…and violating a gun violence restraining order. He’ll be returning shortly to court to review his status as determined by the appointed psychologist, and to set future court dates.
