Already serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, Aaron Hernandez could have more coming his way.
Per the Associated Press, a survivor of a 2012 drive-by shooting in Boston that killed two identified the former Patriots tight end as the shooter during a pretrial hearing on Tuesday. Hernandez is facing two counts of murder for the deaths of 29-year-old Daniel de Abreu and 28-year-old Safiro Furtado.
The shooting allegedly was the result of one of them bumping into him at a nightclub earlier in the night.
From the Associated Press:
Sanches said he had been a passenger in a car stopped at a light in the city's South End when an SUV pulled up. He said someone from the SUV said "What's up, negroes?" and then gunshots began.
Hernandez’ trial is set to begin on Feb. 13, though his lawyers requested for it to be delayed during Tuesday’s hearing.

Patriots seven-time Pro Bowl special teamer Matthew Slater is in Pittsburgh on Saturday making a free-agent visit to the rival Steelers, according to an ESPN's Field Yates.
Slater, who turns 33 in September, has spent the past 10 seasons in a New England. The special teams captain and one of the leaders in the locker room signed a one-year, $1.8 million contract extension in 2016.
The Patriots lost special teamer Johnson Bademosi to the Texans in free agency on Friday but signed special teamers Brandon Bolden and Brandon King just before the free agency period began.

Tom Brady has been making the media rounds lately with "Good Morning America" and "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" appearances this past week to promote his "Tom vs. Time" series and TB12 Method book. On Saturday, Brady was a phone-in guest on NPR's "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me" for their "Not My Job" segment.
Before a mostly cheering live audience in Hartford and after a discussion of the benefits and drawbacks - mostly drawbacks - of tomatoes and strawberries, plus an assessment of the intelligence of most defensive coordinators, Brady settled in to handle three questions about the world's second-most famous Bradys, the family from the classic sitcom - "The Brady Bunch".
