Authorities arrested a 29-year-old Burbank man last week after he allegedly threatened to shoot the staff at a medical facility and resisted being detained by police officers.

At around 8 p.m. on Dec. 19, Kevin Langston reportedly entered Mend Urgent Care at 1701 W. Verdugo Ave. and demanded from the center’s staff medication he claimed to have lost.

Burbank Police Lt. Claudio Losacco said when Langston was told his prescription wouldn’t be filled immediately, he “became upset and threatened the staff, saying he was going to shoot them and ‘shoot up’ the entire building.”

He left the center soon after and was spotted the next day by a police officer who tried to take him into custody for the threats he made at Mend Urgent Care, according to Losacco.

Langston physically resisted the officer until additional help arrived, and he was eventually taken into custody.

He has since been charged by the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office with one count of making criminal threats.

According to court officials, Langston had prior warrants out for his arrest and is currently being held on $140,000 bail.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 13.
