Manhunt in Utah Hills After Chinese Student Killed

He was wanted in the death of ChenWei Guo, a student from China who was found shot to death in his auto in a rugged canyon near the University of Utah campus. His identity has not been released as his family is still being notified.

Authorities are scouring a canyon in Utah by foot and by air for a man suspected of killing a Chinese global student at the University of Utah.

Shortly after, Guo was killed in a carjacking, he said.

A pre-computer science student and peer adviser in the school's International Student and Scholar Services Office, Guo also was an interpreter and technology supporter at the Salt Lake City-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to a social media profile.

Police announced that Boutain had been caught about an hour later. No other details were immediately available.

The university advised those on campus to shelter in place and issued a campus alert Monday about 9 p.m.

One person is dead and campus is on lockdown after a shooting at Red Butte Canyon near the University of Utah campus.

Classes were canceled on Tuesday at the University of Utah, where officials remembered Guo as "extraordinarily outgoing, creative, smart and extremely engaged".

Boutain is believed to have fled on foot into the canyon's thick brush after shooting Guo.

Law enforcement arrested Austin Boutain in connection with the attempted carjacking and killing of ChenWei Guo, a 23-year-old student from China, Monday night. Considered armed and unsafe. A helicopter and armored vehicle were assisting the search in the scrubby mountain foothills and trails just above campus.

Salt Lake City police asked the Golden Police Department to do a welfare check at a trailer at the Clear Creek RV Park in central Golden after a green 2000 Ford pickup truck registered to a man living there was linked to the shooting.

Utah Transit Authority said there will be limited light rail service and that buses won't service the campus for the rest of the night.
