Video: Parole agent shoots gunman 3 times in hospital standoff

Agent Clint Lund fired three shots at the man in a hospital lobby after he refused to drop his weapons

By PoliceOne Staff

NORTH LOGAN, Utah — The North Park Police Department has released surveillance footage capturing the shooting of a gunman by an Adult Probation & Parole agent at a hospital May 16.

The Herald Journal reports 34-year-old Jason Burr entered Cache Valley Hospital demanding to see a doctor when he was confronted by a security officer. Burr reportedly told him, “Someone is going to die today,” according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Burr brandished two handguns — a 9mm and a .38-caliber Derringer.

Burr was confronted by two Adult Probation & Parole agents that were watching over an inmate being treated at the hospital.

One of them, Agent Clint Lund, fired three shots at Burr after he refused to drop his weapons and pointed them at Lund.

Burr was subdued and immediately transported to the ER. He was shot in the left arm, right side of his groin and left side of the chest, according to the report.

Lund’s use of force was determined legally justified this week.

Burr has been charged with attempted aggravated robbery, three counts of aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon, two counts of purchase or use of a firearm by a restricted person and two charges of carrying a concealed, dangerous and loaded weapon. He is due in court July 30.
