Students have been told to take shelter following reports of shots fired at the university

Police say Austin Boutain, 24, took off after he shot and killed Guo during an attempted carjacking near the gate in Red Butte Canyon.

Authorities searched the University of Utah campus and the nearby mountains, but called off the searches on Tuesday. People on the campus remained on lockdown hours later. He has a brother who lives in Alexandria and other family in Minnesota. He was released from an Alabama prison in May. His wife was in custody, but at the time authorities were still searching for Boutain. He filed for divorce in January while imprisoned, but the split wasn't finalized in court.

Police say they're still trying to figure out the events that led up to a 24-year-old ex-convict killing a 23-year-old devout Mormon in a Utah canyon. He was also wanted for questioning in the death of a 63-year-old man whose body was found in a trailer in Golden, Colorado.

Police Chief Dale Brophy says an injured woman came to the campus and reported that her husband had assaulted her while they were camping in Red Butte Canyon east of the school.

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

University of Utah students were told to shelter in place until 3 a.m. Classes were canceled Tuesday. The university identified the victim as ChenWei Guo, an global student from China.

Guo served as a missionary in Provo and volunteered as a foreign language interpreter for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and recently persuaded his parents to join the church, Comrie said. She is now in custody in Utah.

Tam said Guo also wowed his friends on the dance floor with hip hop moves.
