NORTH LOGAN, Utah (AP) - A man shot by police in a Utah hospital after allegedly pulling out handguns will be in court next month for an evidence hearing.

Prosecutors on July 30 are scheduled to present evidence and testimony against 34-year-old Jason James Burr.

Burr faces eight criminal charges from the May 16 incident, including aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, and weapons violations.

Police say Burr entered the emergency room at Cache Valley Hospital in North Logan with two loaded handguns ready to fire if he did not get the prescription drugs he wanted.

He was shot three times after he was confronted by two corrections officers who happened to be at the hospital with an inmate.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1nXfyNZ ) Burr made a brief court appearance Monday where his evidence hearing was scheduled.
