A man was arrested early Sunday and charged with murder in the death of University of Utah football player Aaron Lowe, police said.

Salt Lake City arrested the man, Buk M. Buk, 22, in connection with the death of Lowe on Sept. 26 after a shooting at a house party.

Buk has been charged with aggravated murder, attempted murder and felony discharge of a firearm. He is also accused of shooting a 20 year-old woman who “underwent extension surgery” and remains in critical condition, police said.

The shooting occurred at a house party just hours after the team beat Washington State University, police said. No motive has been released, and it is unclear whether Buk has representation.

Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown thanked people who shared information. “So many lives have been impacted from this senseless shooting,” he said in a statement.

Lowe was the first player to receive a memorial scholarship that honored University of Utah player Ty Jordan, 19. who died after an accidental shooting in December. They had been high school teammates.
