University of Utah students told to shelter in place amid reported shooting

One dead in shooting near University of Utah police searching for shooter

Police went to Ingle's trailer at Clear Creek RV Park in central Golden Tuesday after his green pickup truck was found to be linked to the fatal shooting of ChenWei Guo, a 23-year-old student from China, during an attempted carjacking on the University of Utah campus Monday night.

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

Police are searching for a suspect.

Police say the suspected gunman, 24-year-old Austin Boutain.

Commuter train services were suspended near the school, local media reported.

Alabama court records show Boutain and his wife Kathleen married in 2014 and had two children. Finding the door unlocked, they entered and found a 63-year-old white man dead in the bathroom, Harvey said. They did not say if he had any connection with the university.

The documents also say Boutain acknowledged taking three guns from a home in Colorado. An extensive search of upper campus and the hills above Red Butte Canyon is still on going.

The University of Utah campus is eerily quiet this Halloween day.

ChenWei Guo came to the USA from China, joined the Mormon church at 16 and later chose to study computer science at the University of Utah. She said Guo loved to dance and wowed his friends on the dance floor in August at a church event for young, unmarried Chinese members of the church.

The school of about 32,800 students is Utah's flagship university and sits on more than 2 square miles (5.18 sq. kilometers) nestled against mountains on the east side of Salt Lake City. "We are sending out our heartfelt and earnest prayers".
