Aaron Hernandez shot 2 men, then warned, 'Don't say nothing'

Aaron Hernandez shot 2 men, then warned, 'Don't say nothing'

A former friend of ex-New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez has taken the stand in Hernandez's double murder trial this week.

Prosecutor Patrick Haggan drew the narrative out of Alexander Bradley - former best friend and marijuana dealer to Aaron Hernandez - to help the jury understand what happened in the Theater District that Sunday night in July.

Hernandez's lawyers, however, are trying to pin the murders on Bradley, saying the shooting was the result of a botched drug deal.

The defense claims it was actually Bradley who did it. He said he drove as Hernandez told him to catch up to the BMW in which Abreu and Furtado were sitting.

Before the trial ended last week, the jury heard testimony about a tattoo of a gun and the words God Forgives.

On July 15, 2012, the night Abreu and Furtado were murdered, Bradley said Hernandez came to his house in CT in a silver Toyota 4Runner where they smoked marijuana and drank, then left to go to Club Cure in Boston, with Bradley driving the SUV. Prosecutors said the tattoo was done to memorialize the killings.

After the murders, Hernandez and Bradley when to the home of Bradley's daughter in CT, and Hernandez's cousin Tanya Singleton arrived, Bradley testified. Bradley received immunity from prosecution in exchange for his testimony at this trial.

After visiting two clubs and leaving soon after, Bradley said the pair drove around in laps, parked near the clubs, and wandered around Tremont Street's nightlife some more before Hernandez spotted the man, with his four friends, that he believed "tried" him earlier in the night.

Bradley said Hernandez retrieved the gun from inside the hood of the SUV where he had placed it and put it in the glove box.

He is also a former National Football League first-round pick who has won a playoff game as a quarterback. Mets outfield prospect Tim Tebow will be assigned to the Columbia Fireflies to start the 2017 season.

"There they go, there they go", Hernandez allegedly said to Bradley, urging him to follow.

Bradley testified that they spotted the victims in the BMW after Hernandez said something like "there they go." and so Bradley gave pursuit in the SUV.

Hernandez then took out the gun and told Bradley to roll his window down and lean back in his seat, Bradley said. "I hit one in the head and one in the chest".

Hours later, Haggan said Bradley awoke in the back seat of a vehicle with a gun to his head.

When Bradley woke up, he testified, he saw "Mr. Hernandez with a gun to my face".

Bradley said Hernandez's cousin, Tanya Singleton, came to the house-and claimed Hernandez told her to take care of the vehicle.

After the murders, Bradley said, Hernandez "became extremely paranoid", and "thought helicopters were following him everywhere".

Hernandez already is serving a prison sentence of life without the possibility of parole for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player.

Hernandez and Bradley's friendly relationship fell apart during a trip to South Florida in February 2013 to attend a Super Bowl party. "I wanted to make it even". He claims Hernandez shot him because he knew too much as a witness to the shootings-and that he didn't tell police because he wanted revenge on Hernandez.
