      You can later find Aaron in the same bar as Dino if you leave him alive. There was an option to extort more money, but I just insulted him and walked by so I don't know if it works.

        For anyone curious, after a bunch of testing the only 2 ways I was able to 'neutralize' instead of kill Aaron is to use any gun with the 'non-lethal' mod or to have him reach 0 health with a non-lethal DoT (burn, etc.). Blunt weapons of any kind do NOT work and will always kill him (I tried 20 separate times by quick loading and even using different blunt weapons and every time he died).

          I believe Aaron is bugged. I tried 4 separate times to neutralize him instead of killing him, 3 times with Gorilla Arms, once with a Baseball Bat, but all four times the last blow kills him.
