SALT LAKE CITY (October 3, 2021) — Police arrested a man early Sunday in connection with the shooting death of Utah sophomore cornerback Aaron Lowe.
Homicide detectives with the Salt Lake City Police Department located Buk M. Buk, 22, in Draper and booked him on charges of aggravated murder, attempted murder and felony discharge of a firearm. Online jail records do not indicate if he has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
“Because of the incredible work of our homicide detectives, we have justice for Aaron,” Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown said during a news conference Sunday. “When I talked to Aaron’s mother on Monday, I made her a promise. We would find her son’s alleged killer.”
Brown did not discuss a motive and declined to answer questions from reporters. But he did say the shooting was not a targeted attack on the university, its athletic department or Lowe, nor was it gang-related.
