The former tight end for the Patriots has been indicted this morning by a Suffolk County, Massachusetts, Grand Jury for a double murder that took place on July 16, 2012, according to authorities. 

Hernandez is being charged with two counts of first degree murder for the shooting deaths of  Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

“Mr. de Abreu and Mr. Furtado were ambushed and executed as they drove home along Shawmut Avenue in Boston’s South End in the early morning hours of July 16, 2012,” Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said.

Hernandez is also being charged with three counts of armed assault with intent to murder and one count of assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, the district attorney said.

 Surveillance video from a nightclub that Abreu and Furtado were at showed police that Aaron Hernadez was also there. 

 Hernandez was driving an SUV that pulled up alongside de Abreu and Furtado’s car near the nightclub and that the former Patriots tight end fired a .38-caliber revolver at them, according to Conley

The SUV involved in the murder that Hernandez was allegedly driving when he fired shots into de Abreu and Furtado vehicle was parked in his cousin’s garage, in Bristol, Connecticut. Bristol police used a search warrant to search and seize an SUV taken from the home of Hernandez’s uncle, which was suspected to be the vehicle used in the slayings. 

Hernandez has already been indicted for the murder of Odin Lloyd back in June 2013.
