New details came to light during Monday's testimony at the trial of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez.

The ex-NFL player is on trial for the double murder of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu. According to the Associated Press (via ESPN.com), former friend Alexander Bradley testified that De Abreu accidentally spilled a drink on Hernandez at a nightclub.

Hernandez allegedly responded later by firing his revolver into the victim's car at a stoplight, killing both men.

According to the testimony, Hernandez shot Bradley in the face months later. Bradley survived but lost an eye.

"I didn't want to talk to the police," he said in court, per Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports. "I wanted Mr. Hernandez. I wanted his life."

Bradley is in the midst of a five-year sentence for shooting up a nightclub in Hartford, Connecticut.

Hernandez is serving a life sentence after being found guilty in the murder of Odin Lloyd.
