Report: Warrant links Aaron Hernandez to 2012 Boston shooting
New England Patriot turned murder suspect Aaron Hernandez was inside an SUV in Boston’s South End in 2012 when someone shot and killed two men after a dispute in a nightclub, according to police who filed a search warrant in Connecticut.
Hernandez, 24, is being held in prison as he awaits trial in the July 2013 shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, a Dorchester resident and semi-professional football player.
The Associated Press reported Wednesday that the warrant, filed in Bristol, Conn., doesn’t name the suspected triggerman, nor does it indicate a motive.
Both Danny Abreu, in the driver’s seat, and Safiro Furtado, next to him, were killed.
In October, an unidentified man who claims to have survived the deadly drive-by told Fox 25 that he believes Hernandez was the shooter.
No charges have been filed in the case.
