CLINTON, Davis County — Police are searching for a man who brandished a handgun and was "acting suspicious" in the Clinton Walmart parking lot Wednesday afternoon, officials said.

By the time police arrived on scene, the man had entered the Walmart on 1632 N. 2000 West, met up with a woman, made a few purchases and left in a vehicle, according to Clinton Police Sgt. Richard Murdock.

The man did not appear to be in a hurry, according to the store's surveillance video.

Police evacuated Walmart for a couple hours as a safety precaution while they performed a search, Murdock said. The evacuation has since ended.

Officials are now searching for the man to clarify why he was brandishing the gun. Police are investigating whether the man made threats or if the incident was a misunderstanding.

The man was described as a Caucasian in his 20s, Murdock said. He was wearing camouflage shorts or pants and a gray T-shirt.

The incident is still under active investigation, but police don't believe there is any danger to the public, Murdock said.

Those with further information can call the Clinton Police Department at 801-614-0800.
