SALT LAKE CITY -- A Northern Arizona University professor says he's "outraged and dismayed" over the death of his student, 32-year-old Brian Cardall. Cardall died after being tased by Hurricane police Tuesday afternoon.

In an interview with The Spectrum newspaper, Professor Stephen Shuster says Cardall had, quote: "all of the intellectual, creative and scientific tools he needed to become one of the most outstanding scientists of his generation."

He went on to say Cardall "was a consistently friendly, hard-working, intelligent, witty and even-tempered guy."

Shuster's parting comment was that to say Cardall will be missed is a tragic understatement.

The funeral for Cardall will be held Monday at the Valley View Stake Center, 2245 E. 3900 South at 11 a.m.
