Larry Aaron, III walked out of his house on New Years Eve going to a local party just to have fun with his friends and celebrate the New Year; but this celebration didn’t end well.
He was attending the party when he was hit in the back by a stray bullet. Now Larry Aaron, III is paralyzed from the waste down.
Aaron was a star Football player in his second season on full Scholarship playing at Marshall University from Columbia, Maryland. He was attending the party in Severn, Maryland.
Police were called to the party around 1 am. When they arrived they found two persons hit by gunfire. Another 17 year old was hit in the shoulder.
Police are still trying to determine who pulled the trigger and why.
A GoFundMe Page has been set up to help with the Medical Bills and the reconstruction of the home that he has to live in for his condition.
The family hopes to raise $250,000. The page reads in part:
