Man allegedly shot by Aaron Hernandez shot again

Aaron Hernandez Associate Shot At Nightclub

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A man who alleges he was shot in the face by former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez in Florida has been shot again, this time at a nightclub in Connecticut, police said Monday.

Alexander Bradley was shot multiple times in the leg Sunday night at the Vevo Lounge Bar & Grill in Hartford's South Meadows neighborhood and was taken to a hospital, police Lt. Brian Foley said. His condition wasn't released.

Police haven't announced any arrests or a motive. More information was expected to be released later Monday.

"Alexander Bradley is again a shooting victim," Foley said in a Twitter posting Monday morning. "Multiple GSWs (gunshot wounds) to his leg. Major Crimes investigating."

Bradley, an associate of Hernandez, 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 of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player whose body was found June 17 near Hernandez's North Attleborough, Mass., home. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty.

Boston police, meanwhile, have linked both Hernandez and Bradley to a double homicide in July 2012. Police believe Hernandez and Bradley 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.

The warrant doesn't say who investigators believe pulled the trigger in the double killing or suggest a motive. No charges have been filed in the case. The warrant sought recordings of phone calls made by Bradley while he was jailed in Hartford in October for failing to appear before a Massachusetts grand jury investigating the 2012 shooting.

Investigators say they found the SUV wanted in the Boston homicides at the home of Hernandez's uncle in Bristol.

Police say surveillance camera recordings show Hernandez and Bradley going into a Boston nightclub shortly after the shooting victims went into the club. The recordings also show Hernandez driving the SUV out of a nearby parking garage with Bradley as a passenger shortly before the shootings, police said.

Seems he's not heeding subtle warnings about his lifestyle.

You'd think he'd learn to stay away from places where he'd be shot.

Unfortunately many people assume that if they are in public they have a better chance of survival. If they are in the public eye then no one will try anything because of all of the witnesses. These people have never heard of the term - downtown assassin. A downtown assassin is just that. Someone who will you anytime, anyplace so long as the price is right. That means broad daylight in a crowded downtown environment. Hence the name, downtown assassin. My question is, why is this guy not in a witness protection program?

If you haven't figured out by now that this guy has a hit out on him, to prevent a possible homicide witness testimony, my guess is you'll never make detective.

If I was this guy...I would LAY LOW for a long time. I'm sure people have put a hit out on this guy just to keep him quiet. After getting shot in the face the first time...I would be afraid to even go outside, let alone a nightclub!!

If it wasn't for bad luck he'd have none at all.

Hint: Nightclubs are nothing but trouble. What is there? Loud and crappy music. Overpriced and watered-down booze. Women that are 2s but after a dozen drinks become 10s. And don't forget the big one.........people who can't handle their liquor and are looking to fight......or worse. If you need to go to a club for a good time you are a loser.
