A University of Utah football player from Mesquite has been killed in taking shots at a local party in Salt Lake City early Sunday.
Police said the shooting that killed Aaron Lowe happened soon after noon in the Salt Lake City neighborhood of Sugar House. It was only hours after the Utes beat Washington State 24-13.
Police said one more casualty was in essential condition, and specialists are looking for a suspect. While no captures have been made, the police accept the presumed shooter appeared excluded.
Lowe showed up in 16 consolidated games in uncommon groups his initial two seasons and played in every four games this season.
Lowe was the principal beneficiary of a remembrance grant made to respect previous Utah player Ty Jordan, a 19-year-old halfback who passed on after an unintentional shooting in Denton last year.
After Jordan passed on, Lowe exchanged his pullover number from No. 2 to No. 22 to respect his companion.
Lowe and Jordan were dearest companions and partners, both in Utah and at West Mesquite.
Lowe was at Jordan's memorial service at AT&T Stadium in January and conveyed Jordan's coffin.
Previous West Mesquite High School football trainer Christopher Lee watched Aaron pursue his fantasy about playing at the school level.
"Buckled down, he came in ahead of schedule, left late. A stunning child," he said.
For his purposes, it's greater than football.
