Lowe

Lowe’s family released a statement on Monday announcing Aaron’s funeral is scheduled for Monday, October 11 at Family Cathedral of Praise in Mesquite, Texas. A public viewing will be held at Precious Memories Mortuary-Dallas on Sunday, October 10 in Duncanville, Texas. On Sept. 26, Lowe, 21, and a 20-year-old woman were shot while attending a house party at 2215 S. Broadmoor Street (2625 East) just hours after the U. football team defeated Washington State at Rice-Eccles Stadium. Charging documents identified the woman as Fuamoli Pomale. Charging documents state that Pomale was shot in the neck and chest and unable to speak to detectives. She communicated with police by typing messages on her phone. She stated that Lowe was trying to move his car, but a group of four men would not get out of the way, according to charging documents. The buses emptied, and after a few minutes in the warm, autumn sun, the University of Utah football players, coaches and staff members formed two lines and entered the church in pairs. They passed through a foyer and slowly made their way down the center aisle to where Aaron Lowe, their teammate — their brother, really — lay in a coffin, dressed in his white No. 22 uniform and crimson cleats, with a football placed on his belly. Lives cut short are almost by definition senseless deaths, but the passing of Jordan and now Lowe — who was shot to death two weeks ago at a house party by an uninvited guest — has left two communities grappling with the cruelty of losing two young men who had survived bleak upbringings and were set up for futures as bright as their incandescent smiles. “They were winning in life,” said Jeff Neill, their high school coach. “Not everybody in their environment gets the chance to do that.”

City

Salt Lake City seemed the perfect place. Kyle Whittingham, Utah’s head coach, told Lowe’s mother — as he does all his players’ parents — that her son would be family, with a coaching staff full of fathers and a locker room full of brothers. It would be a refuge in every conceivable way — and one in which Lowe blossomed until trouble found him.Small memorials for Sophomore defensive back Aaron Lowe, who was shot and killed early Sunday morning have been placed at two locations, one at the scene of the shooting and the other at the Spence and Cleone Eccles Football Center at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City on Sunday, Sept. 26, 2021.

Police

She read a portion of Lowe’s paper from her class where he wrote about the lack of knowledge people have about African American history and the effects that are still being felt today with mass incarceration and police brutality. It’s not clear who says that, but moments later, two gunshots ring out. That’s when police say Lowe and the unidentified woman were both shot and fell to the ground. Shortly after, you hear five or six more gunshots as people are seen scrambling to getaway. Salt Lake City Police later arrested 22-year-old Buk M. Buk in connection with the shooting. Authorities were able to track the suspect down in Draper early Sunday morning after executing a search warrant. He was arrested for murder, attempted aggravated murder, and felony discharge of a firearm.

Witnesses told police Buk was an uninvited guest at that party and was “causing problems.” He was allegedly seen saying something in a low voice to another guest before grabbing a pistol from someone’s bag and walking across the street. (Source: www.abc4.com)
