Alexander Bradley, Man Allegedly Shot in the Face by Aaron Hernandez, Shot Multiple Times in Connecticut Club
Alexander Bradley has some pretty awful luck when it comes to getting shot. Or maybe he just needs to stay away from hanging out at clubs to the wee hours of the night. The man who was once allegedly shot in the face by Aaron Hernandez at a local strip club was shot again Sunday night.
This time around, Bradley was shot multiple times outside the Vevo Lounge Bar & Grill in Hartford, Connecticut.
His condition is unknown, but he is expected to survive, according to an AP report.
Cops say there was supposedly some kind of disturbance in the club that spilled out into the parking lot. That's when Bradley was allegedly shot by an unknown assailant.
Bradley then went to a vehicle to retrieve a gun, and then shot up the front of the club, police say.
According to the report, there were no other injuries.
Cops arrived on the scene and chased down the car Bradley was apparently riding in. When the car door was opened, Bradley fell out onto the street. He was then taken to a local hospital under police guard.
Bradley made news recently when he sued Hernandez for shooting him in the face outside of Tootsies Cabaret in Miami.
According to the suit, Bradley had a verbal altercation with the former Florida Gator tight end at Tootsies. The two left the strip club and got into a car. They headed up to Palm Beach, where Hernandez allegedly pulled out a gun and fired it.
The gunshot went off by Bradley's face, severely injuring his eye. As a result, Bradley suffered loss of his right eye and had to undergo multiple surgeries.
The original lawsuit was dismissed after an error in paperwork. The suit was refiled, and Hernandez was served with papers in early July.
Later that month, he testified before a grand jury in Hernandez's murder case. Hernandez is charged with murder in the death of Odin Lloyd.
And, according to a recently released search warrant filed in Connecticut, Bradley was reportedly riding with Hernandez in an SUV when someone inside the vehicle shot two people to death in Boston in 2012.
The warrant says Hernandez had two drinks and left the club after ten minutes with Bradley. The two got in a Toyota 4Runner, with Hernandez driving.
According to the warrant, the SUV circled the block around the club slowly as the victims left in their own vehicle.
The Toyota 4Runner then pulled up next to the car the victims were riding in at a stoplight. That's when five or six shots were fired, killing Abreu and Furtado, says the warrant.
According to a witness who was sitting in the backseat of the victims' car, Hernandez was the trigger man.
