A man accused of gunning down an global student at the University of Utah on Monday has been captured after an overnight manhunt, authorities in Salt Lake City said.
Authorities believe 24-year-old Austin Boutain shot a 23-year-old man by the entrance to Red Butte Canyon in Salt Lake City after attempting to hijack his vehicle.
Salt Lake City police Chief Mike Brown has since apologized and fired Payne.
Friends say the 23-year-old smiled easily, loved to dance and could be found trekking canyons around Salt Lake City, like the one where his body was found Monday night.

With Atletico Madrid in third place and yet to win in the Champions League this season, it could be a major scalp for both sides. Fabregas came off midway through the second half with Danny Drinkwater getting his Champions League debut.
Boutain also has a son who lives in Minnesota.
The shooting took place about 21:00 local time Monday (03:00 GMT Tuesday), the university reported that gunshots were heard on campus. Police swarmed rugged mountain foothills near the University of Utah Tuesday, Oct. 31, searching for Austin Boutain, suspected of killing Guo while on the run after another homicide in Colorado.
During a news conference Tuesday morning, authorities stated they had reason to believe Boutain and his wife were also connected to a recent homicide in Colorado, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
University of Utah President David Pershing sent a letter to the campus community announcing classes would be canceled Tuesday out of respect for Guo, a pre-computer science major. The university identified the victim as ChenWei Guo, an global student from China. An extensive search of upper campus and the hills above Red Butte Canyon is still on going.
