Man Who Murdered Chinese University of Utah Student for His Car Captured

Austin Boutain, the Colorado man who fatally shot University of Utah student ChenWei Guo, was arrested by police officers on Tuesday, according to CNN. He was spotted by a librarian inside a Salt Lake City Public Library who recognized him and alerted officials shortly after 1 p.m.

Authorities learned that after killing Guo, Boutain coerced a female friend of Guo’s, who had been present at the time of the shooting, to flee the scene of the crime with him. The woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said that he had attempted to force her up the canyon before becoming distracted, allowing the woman to run away. Boutain reportedly fired at her as she fled, according to campus police.
