The Hartford Courant obtained documents on Tuesday that detail the reasons why Boston police have deemed former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez as a suspect in a double homicide in the summer of 2012.

Per the Courant, surveillance footage places Hernandez in a Boston nightclub and then later near where two men were killed and another injured in Boston's South End on July 15, 2012. Documents also explain that informants' accounts allege a connection between Hernandez and the incident, according to the Courant.

Further evidence cited by authorities includes a Toyota 4Runner Hernandez rented that was later found in a garage in Bristol, Conn. at the home of Hernandez's cousin.

According to reports, witnesses recalled seeing gunfire coming from a gray SUV with Rhode Island plates. Authorities said 29-year-old Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and 28-year-old Safiro Teixeira Furtado were killed, but police didn't identify the third victim.

Massachusetts State Police recovered a gun in August that they say was used in the attack, according to multiple reports.

Hernandez remains jailed in Massachusetts, charged in a separate case with first-degree murder in the shooting death of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd.
