Police: Utah football player killed in house party shooting
Aaron was a great teammate, friend, brother and son and was loved by anyone who crossed paths with him.
The shooting that killed Aaron Lowe occurred just after midnight, only hours after the Utes beat Washington State 24-13, and less than a year after a teammate of Lowe's died in an accidental shooting.
Police said another victim in Sunday's shooting incident — a woman — was hospitalized in critical condition and authorities were searching for a suspect.
“We are devastated to hear about the passing of Aaron Lowe,” Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Aaron's family and friends, along with the other individual who was harmed in this tragic incident. Aaron was a great teammate, friend, brother and son and was loved by anyone who crossed paths with him. He will be deeply missed.” Lowe, 21, was the first recipient of a memorial scholarship created to honor former Utah player Ty Jordan, a 19-year-old tailback who died after an accidental shooting in December 2020.
