Before arrest, Hernandez had brushes with violence

(Continued)

BOSTON —

Also in 2007, the Orlando Sentinel reported Hernandez was among three Florida football players and another who had gone on to the NFL that police in Gainesville questioned after a double shooting that happened after the team lost a game in 2007. The paper reported Hernandez's mother confirmed he was among those questioned but police at the time said none of the players were suspects.

Hernandez declined comment at the time, the paper reported. A request for comment left with a spokesman for Hernandez's legal team Tuesday evening was not immediately returned.

Although Hernandez is facing a murder charge, his troubles may not end there.

Police in Hernandez's hometown of Bristol, Conn., said Tuesday that Boston police have asked for their help with a double homicide investigation linked to the former NFL star.

Bristol Police Lt. Kevin Morrell said the request from Boston police in the July 2012 double homicide was based on evidence developed through the investigation of Lloyd's slaying. He said police were asked to search the same home in Bristol for both investigations, and they seized a vehicle at the address Friday.

Two men died in the shooting in Boston's South End on July 15, 2012 and another was wounded. Witnesses reported seeing gunfire coming from a gray SUV with Rhode Island plates that was aimed at a vehicle carrying the victims, 29-year-old Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and 28-year-old Safiro Teixeira Furtado.

Boston police have declined to comment on whether Hernandez is being looked as a possible suspect in that case from last summer.

Hernandez has been connected to still more incidents involving guns, although none have resulted in criminal charges against him.

A man who claims Hernandez shot him in the face in February after an argument at a Florida strip club filed a civil lawsuit days before police arrested Hernandez.
