Hernandez Associate Facing Weapons Charges
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Police say an associate of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez is facing weapons charges related to a shooting outside a Hartford nightclub.
Police say Alexander Bradley was shot multiple times in the leg Sunday night outside the Vevo Lounge Bar & Grill and then opened fire himself.
Hartford Police Lt. Brian Foley says Bradley faces charges including criminal possession of a firearm and unlawful discharge of firearm. He was arrested early Monday.
An attorney for Bradley declined to comment.
Bradley alleges in a Florida lawsuit that he lost his right eye when Hernandez shot him in the face as they argued outside a Miami club in February. Hernandez is detained on a murder charge in the death last year of a semi-professional football player.
