Report: Aaron Hernandez placed at Boston nightclub at same time as two 2012 murder victims

According to a report in the Hartford Courant, former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been identified on video as being at a Boston nightclub at the same time as two men who were later killed in a drive-by shooting in 2012.
The report credits multiple law enforcement sources as saying Hernandez is visible on a nightclub surveillance footage.
Dorchester residents Daniel Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28, were shot and killed in their car early in the morning of July 16, 2012.
While searching for evidence in the June murder of Odin Lloyd, Boston authorities found a vehicle rented in Hernandez’s name at his uncle’s home in Bristol, Conn., and it roughly matched the description of the vehicle that fled the scene of the 2012 double murder. The car reportedly had been parked in the garage for about a year.
The Courant also reported that police are looking at a .38-caliber pistol that was found in the car of a Bristol woman following a June 21 accident, in relation to a case involving Hernandez.
Hernandez was indicted by a grand jury last month for murder and five illegal firearms charges. He is scheduled for an arraignment Friday in Fall River Superior Court.
