Report: Aaron Hernandez Charged With Shooting Murder Witness

Ex-NFL star is already in prison for life.

Published May 12, 2015

Less than a month after being found guilty of the first-degree murder of Odin Lloyd and sentenced to life in prison, Aaron Hernandez has been charged with witness intimidation for shooting a man in the face.

TMZ Sports is reporting that Hernandez allegedly shot a man, Alexander Bradley, who witnessed the ex-NFL star murder two other people. This could be Hernandez's separate double-murder trial stemming from the 2012 homicides of two Boston-area men in a drive-by shooting. 

According to prosecutors, as obtained by TMZ Sports, Hernandez allegedly "shot him in the face on the morning of Feb. 13, 2013, and left him to die on the side of the road in Riviera Beach, Florida, after [Bradley] made a remark about the homicides."


Already in prison for life, can it get any worse?
