HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — He has a civil lawsuit against Aaron Hernandez, saying the former NFL star, shot him in the eye. Now that man has been shot again, this time outside of a Hartford Nightclub.
It’s the latest crime that’s making investigators reopen questions into Aaron Hernandez’s past allegations of crimes.
The Hartford bar was shot up and there was glass everywhere. Under arrest, is 31-year-old Alexander Bradley. He was former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez’s right hand man.
Bradley was at a bar watching the Super Bowl, when a fight broke out and Bradley got shot 3 times in the leg.
“He was bleeding a good amount,” said Lt. Brian Foley, Hartford Police.
Police say Bradley went to his car and allegedly got a gun, he walked back to the club, pulled on the door handle, and he couldn’t get in. They had already locked it on him, the security camera did catch him trying to get in.
He was very angry, and police say that is when he started shooting at the bar. There are still pock marks in the brick, the bullet holes. Police say there were 51 witnesses inside.
It was Super Bowl party and it was lucky that nobody got hurt.
“The internal video shows diving and running for cover as he shoots and fires at the club. Our detectives recovered 11 shell casings at the scene,” said Foley.
Boston police have been in contact with Hartford detectives because of the gun they have recovered from Bradley at the scene. The serial numbers have been filed off, but Hartford detectives have been able to trace it.
“The gun he was using in the incident was stolen, it was stolen from a federal licensee from Springfield, Mass. and it is part of a collection of 111 guns that were stolen,” said Foley.
The reason Boston police are so interested in the firearm, they are looking to put away Aaron Heranandez for a double homicide that happened in 2012, and they will be looking to see if the gun is connected.
“I’m sure there is some interest in that firearm. It will be taken to the lab, and there will be tests done on them and the results, if anyone needs them from another police department, will have access to them,” said Foley.
