ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) _ An associate of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez says he was told Hernandez fired the shots that resulted in the death of a semi-pro football player, according to documents filed in Florida.
The records, obtained by The Associated Press, also show a vehicle wanted in a double killing in Boston a year before had been rented in Hernandez's name.
According to the records, Hernandez associate Carlos Ortiz told Massachusetts investigators that another man, Ernest Wallace, said Hernandez shot Odin Lloyd in an industrial park near Hernandez's home in North Attleborough June 17.
Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in Lloyd's killing. Wallace faces an accessory to murder charge and has pleaded not guilty.
The documents were filed in court by the Miramar, Fla., police department to justify a search of Wallace's mother's home there.
