College football player dies after being paralyzed by bullet

Posted: Updated:

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - A college football player who was paralyzed in a shooting last month has died.

Lawrence Aaron III, 19, of Columbia, Maryland, was shot on Jan. 1 at a New Year's Eve party in Severn, south of Baltimore. Aaron was a freshman defensive tackle at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia.

His mother, Melissa Aaaron, told The Herald-Dispatch in Huntington after the shooting that her son was paralyzed by a bullet lodged in his spine.

The Anne Arundel County Police Department said it was notified that Aaron died from his injuries Thursday at Frederick Memorial Hospital.

Police said homicide detectives are now investigating and are asking anyone with information to call them.

A 17-year-old male was also shot in the arm.
