The department says its detectives have been working "exhaustively on this case from the very start, and they are committed to solving this homicide."

Along with Lowe, a woman attending the party Saturday night was also shot and hospitalized in critical condition. On Monday, Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown said his department has received "several potential promising leads" in connection to the shooting.

Police say they believe there are videos and photos from the party where Lowe was shot in the Sugar House area that could lead to identifying suspects involved in the murder. They ask anyone who hasn't already, to provide any information they may have to detectives.
"We want to reassure the people who attended the party, we are only interested in one thing: finding the person or persons responsible for shooting and killing Aaron Lowe and critically wounding the 20-year-old woman."
