Gunman Threatens Hospital Staff, Receives Treatment After Being Shot
A man with sunglasses walked into a hospital in North Logan, Utah and asked to speak to a doctor. He was speaking in a threatening tone, so security was called to escort him out. Jason Burr, 34, pulled out two hand guns when he was approached by a guard. Shortly after the initial threat, agent Clint Lund went into the hospital and shot the suspect three times. It turns out that the same hospital that he threatened then treated his wounds for three weeks.
