Utah campus shooting suspect has ties to Ohio

Police are investigating a deadly shooting near the University of Utah. The 24-year-old suspect, who is still on the run, has been arrested in Ohio before.

Police say Austin Boutain shot and killed at least one person during a carjacking late Monday night.

He was accused of running from officers during an investigation at a Cincinnati hotel, "causing alarm to patients and employees," according to police.

He lived in Cincinnati as recently as 2015, according to Hamilton County court records.

Authorities asked residents near the University of Utah campus to "shelter in place" as police continue to look for the armed and dangerous suspect.

Boutain has a tattoo covering the front of his nect and one down his left arm onto his hand, according to police.
