It was reported that Provo police responded to a Sam’s Club parking lot for a welfare check on a man who was reportedly walking around and asking people for water. A Provo officer then encountered 34-year-old Emiliano Medina, who police said pointed at the LEO’s firearm before making a gun gesture with his hand and pointing it at his own head.
