  • A TMZ report referenced a tattoo on Hernandez's hand, which reads "Blood," as evidence of Hernandez's involvement in the gang. (The skin art actually reads "Blood, Sweat & Tears," but reports claim the last two words in the tattoo were added to conceal Hernandez's gang affiliation.) The tabloid also released a photo of an alleged 17-year-old Hernandez, which features the tight end dressed in red clothing and flashing a gang sign that is reportedly common with the Bristol Bloods.

The Massachusetts State Police department have found a gun that they claim was handled by former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez in a 2012 double homicide in Boston.

According to ESPN, the weapon was located inside the automobile of Jailene Diaz-Ramos, 19, after she got into an accident on June 21 while traveling on Interstate 91 in Springfield, Mass.

However, it's still uncertain how Diaz-Ramos, who is from Hernandez's hometown of Bristol, Conn., is associated with him.

CBS 3 in Springfield reported that ballistic tests indicate that the gun is the same one used when Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu, 29, and Safiro Texiera Furtado, 28, were fired at outside near a club in Boston.

Witnesses at the scene had informed law enforcement that they were shot at from an SUV that had Rhode Island license plates, which were strikingly similar to a car that was towed from Hernandez's uncle's residence in Bristol.

The shooting was said to have taken place after a fight broke out at a club between the incarcerated former football star, his group of people and others.

Hernandez is currently in prison in Mass., and charged with first-degree murder in the death of Odin Lloyd on June 17. He has a probable cause hearing set for Thursday.
