Veteran arrested after threatening VA hospital

An Illinois man was arrested last week after calling a VA hospital in Marion, Illinois, and threatening to “fill that place with lead.”

Mark Harmon, a 29-year-old Army veteran, reportedly called a nurse at the VA, and said, “I have a glock, and I’m going to fill that place with lead.” Harmon was arrested several hours later after he drove to the VA hospital and met up with police standing guard. The police found a Glock 23 semiautomatic handgun, a magazine filled with bullets, and some loose ammunition in Harmon’s vehicle.

The reason for Harmon’s threats against the VA are unknown, however he was arrested in June 2007 for allegedly holding his parents hostage in their home while armed with a handgun and assault rifle.
