Police Still Investigating The Death Of U Of U Football Player Aaron Lowe

There was only one update from police Tuesday regarding the fatal shooting of University of Utah football player Aaron Lowe. Police released the age of the other person who was shot and sent to the hospital the same night, a 20-year-old woman. Police say they are still continuing to investigate leads.


Kelvin Chynoweth, who lives in the neighborhood where the shooting occured, says it's typically a very quiet place. He says he heard a “bang, bang, bang,” but he didn’t suspect it was a gun until police showed up.


The university says a vigil for Lowe will be held on Wednesday on the Student Union southwest lawn at 7:30 p.m.
