Marshall University football player paralyzed after being shot at New Year's party

Marshall University football player paralyzed after being shot at New Year's party

A freshman football player for Marshall University is paralyzed following a shooting at a get-together on New Year's Eve.

A report in the Huntington, West Virginia Herald-Dispatch said Larry Aaron was at a party in Severn, Maryland that the player and friends had heard about on social media. He was reportedly struck by stray gunfire while standing near a wall, the report said.

His mother told the publication that the bullet is lodged in Aaron's spinal cord and that the injury is not considered life threatening. 

Aaron, a 6 foot 5, 272-pound defensive tackle played in the Thundering Herd's victory in last month's New Mexico Bowl.

It’s time for #HerdNation to wrap their loving arms around Larry Aaron (#93) and lift him up in our thoughts and prayers! ������https://t.co/Xsm9E1UejS
