A University of Utah football player was shot and killed at a house party on Sunday.
Cops say that Aaron Lowe was shot just after midnight, only hours after the Utah beat Washington State 24-13.
A woman was also shot and hospitalized. She is currently in critical condition and police have not arrested any suspects.
“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.”
According to NBC News, Lowe was the first recipient of a memorial scholarship created to honor former Utah player Ty Jordan. Jordan, 19, died after an accidental shooting in December 2020. After Jordan died, Lowe switched his jersey number from No. 2 to No. 22 to honor his friend.
