The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, came forward after seeing Hernandez arrested for the murder of Odin Lloyd. He describes the night in vivid detail .
The group had just left Cure Lounge in Boston's Theater District. He recalls only a good time: some drinking, some of them were dancing. As he thinks about the night, as he does every day, he remembers no fights, nothing out of the ordinary.
“We never had any trouble. We were not those kind of people. We were just having fun,” he said.
They left at 2 a.m., closing time at Cure. Pulling up to a red light on Shawmut Avenue, getting ready to turn left onto Herald Street, an SUV suddenly pulled up next to them.
The man says he heard someone shout, “What up, Negroes?” and then the bullets started flying.
Two people died and the case remains unsolved. Police now believe Hernandez was involved and a grand jury is considering a possible indictment. The man, who said he has not been able to shake the night from his memory, wants answers from Hernandez.
“That's what I want to hear from (Hernandez). Why? What's the reason? That's the answer I'm still wanting since last year. He must be crazy.”
