A warrant says former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez "may have been the shooter" in the deaths of two men in 2012 as police dig further into the mystery.

Already in custody and being held without bond after being charged with the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, Hernandez is also being investigated for ties to the drive-by double murder of Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

Abreu and Furtado had just left the Cure Lounge with three other men when a vehicle pulled up beside them and someone opened fire. According to the warrant, the Hartford Courant reported, surveillance footage showed that Hernandez and his friend Alexander Bradley were previously at the nightclub.

Bradley has since filed a lawsuit against Hernandez, claiming the former football player shot him and caused him to lose his right eye.

In a just-released June affidavit, CBS News said Boston police believe there is probable cause Hernandez was the driver in the double murder case and “may have been the shooter.”

Police only began to link Hernandez to the double murder after he was arrested for allegedly killing Lloyd. The Courant reported that a conversation involving Hernandez and overheard by a nightclub employee was what started police looking in Hernandez’s direction. A detective also recalled seeing Hernandez in footage taken before the double homicide at the Cure Lounge.

Police have confiscated the car that may have been used in the killing, a silver Toyota 4Runner that was a loaner to Hernandez from a sponsor after he shot some promos for them, the Courant said. It was recovered from the home of one of Hernandez’s relatives in Bristol, Conn.
