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 menafter 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.
