A Marshall University football player died Thursday due to complications he had while recovering from a gunshot wound to his back that left him paralyzed. Marshall redshirt freshman defensive tackle Larry Aaron was shot at a New Year’s Eve party in Severn, Md. The school announced in a statement that Aaron, who was undergoing treatment at a Maryland hospital, had died. He was 19. "Marshall University lost a very special young man today and it has shocked and saddened us all,” Marshall football coach Doc Holliday said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all of Larry Aaron's family and friends, many of whom were his fellow Thundering Herd teammates. His loss will be felt in every corner of our program and his spirit will never be forgotten." There have been no arrests made in the case. Anne Arundel County police spokesperson Marc Limansky told USA TODAY Sports that the “investigation is ongoing."
