Man arrested in Utah shooting of student from China
    2017-November-2  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A CHINESE student at the University of Utah was fatally shot by a suspected gunman also wanted for another killing in Colorado, U.S. police said.

Austin Boutain, 24, who police said shot Guo Chenwei outside the campus’ eastern border Monday night during an attempted carjacking, was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon around 2:45 p.m., the Salt Lake City Police Department said.

He had been seen earlier in a green pickup truck with Colorado plates, which Utah officials believe he stole during an earlier killing.

Police have also taken Boutain’s wife into custody in Salt Lake City. She appeared on the University of Utah’s campus Monday night, saying her husband had assaulted her while they were camping in the Emigration Canyon. They then got the call about a man with a gunshot wound to his head.

Authorities tracked down their camp site in the canyon, where they found a gun as well as ammunition.

Boutian, who has a cross tattoo on his face and was wearing black clothing, was considered armed and dangerous during a manhunt Tuesday, police said.

University of Utah President David Pershing said at a news conference Tuesday that the school was working to bring relatives of the slain student to Utah from China.

The school described Guo in a tweet as “extraordinarily outgoing, creative, smart and extremely engaged.”

The Chinese Embassy in Washington paid close attention to the incident and expressed sincere condolences and sympathy to Guo’s relatives, a Chinese embassy official told Xinhua.

The Chinese embassy has made contact with the police since the incident, urging timely investigation.

The Chinese embassy will closely follow the development of the case, and provide assistance for the relatives during their stay in the United States, the official said.
