The alleged victim of an Aaron Hernandez shooting was shot again in a Connecticut nightclub police said Monday. Alexander Bradley, who claims former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez shot him in the face in Florida, was shot outside a Hartford nightclub Sunday night.
Alexander Bradley was shot multiple times in the leg at the Vevo Lounge Bar & Grill in Hartford's south end. Police Lt. Brian Foley said the victim was taken to Hartford Hospital, according to The Hartford Courant on Feb. 3.
Cops expect Bradley to be released later Monday. He's in police custody since investigators say before he was discovered with the gunshot wounds, he had returned to the bar and fired shots in retaliation.
Bradley, an East Hartford native described as a former close friend of Hernandez, did not strike anyone in the bar when he opened fire. Cops pulled his car over when they saw him fleeing the scene. He then fell out of the car bleeding.
Bradley alleges in a Florida lawsuit that he lost his right eye after Aaron Hernandez shot him in the face during an argument outside a Miami nightclub in February, according to MassLive.
Hernandez is currently behind bars on a murder charge in the death of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 of last year near Hernandez's North Attleborough, Mass., home.
The 24-year-old former NFL player has pleaded not guilty. Meanwhile, Boston investigators have linked both Hernandez and Bradley to a double homicide in July 2012.
Police believe both men were in an SUV when someone inside the vehicle fatally shot Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado in Boston's South End.
According to a search warrant filed by Bristol, Conn., police, detectives don't say who they believe pulled the trigger in the double killing or suggest a motive.
No charges have been filed in that case. The warrant sought recordings of phone calls Bradley made while jailed in Hartford in October. Investigators recently found the SUV sought in the Boston homicides at the home of Hernandez's uncle in Bristol.
Cops say surveillance cameras recorded Hernandez and Bradley going into a Boston nightclub shortly after the shooting victims entered. They also show Hernandez driving the SUV out of a nearby parking garage with Bradley as a passenger shortly before the shootings.
Police haven't announced any arrests or a motive in Bradley's Sunday night shooting.
