Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been indicted on two more shooting deaths. 

Hernandez is charged with the double murder of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado on July 16, 2012 outside a Boston nightclub, per Yahoo! Sports' Dan Wetzel: 

"A Suffolk County (Mass.) grand jury indicted Hernandez with the murder of both Abreu and Furtado on Thursday, calling him the triggerman in the incident. Already in jail awaiting the trial for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, the one-time Patriots tight end is now charged with three homicides in two different incidents and, if convicted, would've played the entire 2012 NFL season as a double murderer. 

"The details of the night are chilling. 

"Hernandez, the district attorney alleges and previous court documents say, left the Cure nightclub about 1:30 a.m. with a friend, Alexander Bradley, who, it turns out, filed a civil lawsuit last year against Hernandez for shooting him in the eye in a separate incident while they were in Florida. 

"Surveillance from the club shows Hernandez circling his Toyota 4Runner around the block. About an hour later, Abreu, Furtado and their friends left Cure, climbed into a BMW in a nearby parking garage and headed off. 

"Police say Hernandez followed them to a nearby corner and after they stopped at the light, he pulled his 4Runner alongside them. He then allegedly fired a .38 caliber pistol repeatedly into the passenger side of their car, leaving two dead, one injured and two others fleeing, authorities say. 

"Hernandez's attorney said he will not enter guilty pleas at an arraignment that will likely take place next week."

"(Suffolk District Attorney Daniel) Conley said there was no evidence that Hernandez knew the victims prior to that evening," per ESPN

The same ESPN update states Hernandez's lawyers, Charles Rankin and James Sultan, proclaimed his innocence. 

"'Under our system of justice, Aaron Hernandez is innocent of these charges, and he looks forward to his day in court,' said his lawyers Charles Rankin and James Sultan, in a statement. Alluding to a news conference held by Conley to announce the charges, the attorneys said they would not try the case in the media.

"Conley said the investigation of the Boston killings moved forward after the Lloyd case, which will be tried separately in another Massachusetts court.

"He noted the discovery in Bristol, Connecticut, of the car Hernandez was driving the night the men died and the recovery of the alleged murder weapon from an unnamed person with ties to Hernandez. 

"Conley declined to say whether authorities suspected any connection between the Boston and North Attleborough shootings. 

"Hernandez is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and three counts of armed assault with intent to murder, as well as unlawful possession of the gun used in the attack."

Boston.com's Eric Wilbur interviewed Hernandez on July 27, 2012 -- just eleven days after the alleged double murder and a month before Hernandez signed a new five-year, $40 million deal with the Patriots. 

"Eleven days earlier, Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado were the victims of a drive-by shooting in Boston's South End, murders for which Hernandez was indicted by a grand jury on charges related to them on Wednesday. 

"Eleven days. 

"Exactly one month later, the Patriots would sign Hernandez to a new five-year deal. He'd play one season under it." 

Wilbur asked Hernandez about his former teammates, tight end Rob Gronkowski and quarterback Tom Brady, the latter reportedly went cliff diving during that offseason. 

Hernandez's response was chilling. 

"I just chill, I don't pay any attention to most of that stuff. I'm sure he was having fun, and I definitely get laughs when people tell me about some stuff, but I'm more laid-back, chill and just relaxing. 

"Wonder how difficult it was to include 'homicidal?'

"You know what I'm saying, this is a regular job, we like to have fun, too. I've been zip-lining and stuff like that, too. They can't really tell you what you can and what you can't do, but you just have to be careful about what you do. 

"If you're out there and being reckless and doing crazy stuff, then that's your own stupidity." 

Hernandez is also charged with first-degree murder for the killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd in June 2013. 

Hernandez's arraignment for the alleged double homicide is expected to take place some time next week, per a separate Boston.com update.
