Utah football player's slaying under investigat­ion

- – Staff and wire reports

Investigat­ors have several “promising leads” in the shooting death of Utah sophomore cornerback Aaron Lowe, the Salt Lake City police chief said Monday as family and friends mourned the football player killed less than a year after teammate Ty Jordan died in an accidental shooting.

Lowe was shot at a house party early Sunday after other, uninvited guests were asked to leave, police said. A second person, a woman, suffered critical injuries. The party was thrown hours after the Utes beat Washington State 24-13.

No arrests were immediatel­y made in shooting, but tips had given detectives several potential leads, said Salt Lake City police Chief Mike Brown.
