Shooting near the University of Utah

One person was shot and killed Monday night near the University of Utah, according to the Deseret News.

The school went into lockdown, as police officials searched for a suspect in the Red Butte Canyon area into the early morning hours, the Deseret News reported.

Police said they’re looking for Austin Boutain, 24. Police said they were searching for him at around 9 p.m. after a woman said he assaulted her, adding that he was in the canyon and likely had a gun.

"I wouldn’t call it an active shooter situation, but there is still a suspect who’s armed and dangerous that we would like to take into custody," Salt Lake City Police Sgt. Brandon Shearer told the Deseret News.

Russia-linked posts reached 126 million people

Close to 126 million Facebook users might have seen content uploaded by Russian bots during the 2016 presidential election, BBC reported.

About 80,000 posts were shared before and after the election, with most focused around politics.

The posts were likely seen by 29 million people “directly,” BBC reported. But through likes, shares and comments, they likely reached more than 120 million Facebook users.

Facebook released these figures just ahead of its two Senate hearings, where it will detail how Russia shared articles so easily on the social network.

Lindsey Stirling continues run on ‘Dancing With The Stars’

Lindsey Stirling's run on "Dancing With The Stars" continues to roll on, as she made it through two dances despite what appeared to be some sort of pain, according to the Deseret News.

Stirling and partner Mark Ballas received 27 out of 30 points in the competition. Stirling admitted that her dance routine was difficult.

But Carie Ann Inaba said Stirling nailed it.

“I could see the pain that you were in the whole time, while I saw it in your face and sometimes in your back, I did not see it in the movements,” Inaba said. “You were able to execute those shapes with strength and bravery and conviction.”

Stirling said on Twitter that she’s thankful for all the prayers that helped her.

Utah Jazz celebrate Snyder’s birthday with victory

The Utah Jazz won their second straight game at home with a 104-89 shelling over the Dallas Mavericks, according to the Deseret News.

And head coach Quin Snyder could not be more happy about it. Monday was his birthday, after all.

“If you’ve had as many of them as I’ve had, they lose their special importance,” Snyder said with a smile. “So, the best part of my day other than this was carving a pumpkin. That’s maybe why I’m smiling, if I’m smiling. Just don’t get too high or too low with this group, no matter whose birthday it is.”

Both Derrick Favors and Ricky Rubio knew it was Snyder’s birthday and wanted to get the win to help their coach have a better day.

“We want to keep him happy with tomorrow off, so I hope that’s a good gift for him so we have tomorrow off,” Rubio said with a smile. “Tell him.”
