Aaron Hernandez, a former tight end with the Florida Gators and New England Patriots currently in jail awaiting trial for the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, was indicted Thursday by a grand jury for a July 2012 double murder outside of a nightclub in Boston.
According to Ted Daniel of FOX 25, who first reported last June that Hernandez was being investigated for the double homicide, the incident included three men being shot, “two fatally, as they sat in a car at a traffic light. … A gray or silver SUV with Rhode Island plates opened fire on it.”
Investigators believed that a fight broke out at a nightclub called Curve in the South End between two men and a group of others that included Hernandez. After everyone left the club, someone from an SUV believed to contain Hernandez and his group allegedly opened fire on the vehicle.
Apparently, the SUV containing Hernandez circled the block numerous times waiting for the men to get out of the club and sit at the light.
“This case was about two victims who were stalked, ambushed and senselessly murdered,” the district attorney said on Thursday.
One theory as to Hernandez’s motive for allegedly murdering Lloyd was because he was a witness to this incident.
