MIAMI (AP) — New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, already connected to a homicide victim in Massachusetts, is being sued in South Florida by a man claiming Hernandez shot him in the face after they argued at a strip club in Miami.

The lawsuit filed late Wednesday by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley comes as police in New England investigate the death of 27-year-old semi-pro player Odin Lloyd. Lloyd’s body was found in an industrial park near Hernandez’s home in North Attleborough, Mass.

Bradley claims he and Hernandez were with a group in February at Tootsie’s club when the two got into an argument. Bradley claims Hernandez shot him, causing him to lose his right eye.
