Aaron Hernandez settles lawsuit with friend who was shot
MIAMI (AP) — Former NFL player Aaron Hernandez has settled a lawsuit filed by a friend who says Hernandez shot him in the face.
The Boston Globe reports that attorneys for Alexander Bradley said in documents filed Friday in federal court in Miami that the suit was settled. Terms weren’t disclosed. Attorneys for both men couldn’t be reached for comment.
Bradley was seeking damages for injuries he suffered in a February 2013 shooting after he and Hernandez left a Miami strip club.
The former New England Patriots player is serving a life term for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.
Hernandez has also pleaded not guilty to murder charges in Boston, where he’s accused of gunning down two men outside a nightclub in 2012.
