After being arrested in his home early Wednesday morning, June 26 and being formally charged with first-degree murder, while in the process also being dropped by his team the New England Patriots, NFL tight end Aaron Hernandez is looking to add another whammy on his plate. The 23-year-old athlete is now being investigated for his alleged involvement in a drive-by shooting that killed two people.
Hernandez is being linked to the July 15, 2012 car ambush that took place in Boston, killing the driver and one passenger and leaving another person injured. Prior to the drive-by shooting, Hernandez was seen earlier that night in a nightclub where he supposedly figured in an altercation.
The sequence of events, nightclub altercation followed by shooting incident resulting in murder, is what also transpired in the case of the multiple shooting and eventual death of former semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd for which Hernandez was arrested recently. Witnesses reported that Hernandez and Lloyd had an argument in a club a few days before the victim's body was found dead in an industrial park in North Attleborough.
Hernandez's lawyer has not commented yet on the new murder case. The football player has been detained on account of the "overwhelming" evidence that had been gathered pinning him to the murder, like the ammunition clip that turned up after a search of his Hummer that matches the caliber of casings found at the crime scene. He has not been granted bail by the judge.
