Man Says He Lost Eye After NFL Player Shot Him

Alexander S. Bradley said in a lawsuit that he lost an eye after NFL player Aaron Hernandez shot him in South Florida in February. An attorney for Bradley, Elizabeth Eilender, discussed the case. Separately, state police returned to Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough, Massachusetts on Wednesday, two days after a body was found about a mile away in an industrial park. Family friend Keith Roy said relatives of the victim, Odin Lloyd, are heartbroken.

Lawyers for Aaron Hernandez say their client won't answer accusations in a federal lawsuit filed by a man who says the former star NFL tight end shot him in the face outside a Miami strip club.

In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves.

According to court records, Bradley claims Hernandez shot him after they argued at the club in February. Bradley seeks at least $100,000 in damages.

A judge in Miami denied Hernandez's request to delay the Florida proceedings until a murder charge against him in the shooting death in Massachusetts of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd is resolved.

The New England Patriots released Hernandez soon after he was accused in the killing.
