New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez, who’s involved in a police investigation about a murder near Boston, may have been involved in a shooting Feb. 13 in Riviera Beach.
Palm Beach County Sheriff‘s deputies found a man bleeding from the head early that morning on Fiscal Court, in an industrial part of Riviera Beach.
When they arrived, according to PBSO’s 17-page report, they found 30-year-old Bradley Sherrod of Hartford, Conn., bleeding from the head and a hand.
Sherrod was uncooperative and rude to both deputies and emergency personal — and refused to identify his attacker.
He did, however, claim in a federal lawsuit filed in West Palm Beach June 13 that Hernandez, the Patriots’ up-and-coming tight end and former University of Florida standout, was the one who shot him while waving a gun at him during a dispute.
The bullet traveled up Sherrod’s arm and into his skull, shattering his eyeball.
The argument between Hernandez and Sherrod, who were friends, allegedly occurred as the two drove north on I-95 in Palm Beach County after a night of partying in Miami strip joints.
