(Newser) – A man who alleges he was shot in the face by former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez in Florida was shot again, this time outside a Connecticut nightclub, where he then opened fire, police say. Alexander Bradley was shot multiple times in the right thigh last night outside the Vevo Lounge Bar & Grill in Hartford's South Meadows neighborhood and was taken to a hospital under police guard, police Lt. Brian Foley said. His condition wasn't released, but he's expected to survive. Police haven't announced any arrests.

"Evidence revealed there was a disturbance in the club that was pushed outside by staff," Foley said. "At this point, Bradley was shot. Bradley went to a vehicle, got a gun, then shot up the front of the club." No injuries were reported. Responding police officers stopped a car that sped away from the club, and an injured Bradley got out and fell on the street, Foley said. No charges against Bradley were announced. Bradley, an associate of Hernandez, alleges in a Florida lawsuit that he lost his right eye when Hernandez shot him in the face as they argued outside a Miami club in February. Hernandez, who has pleaded not guilty to murdering Odin Lloyd, has also been linked, along with Bradley, to a double homicide from July 2012.
