BOSTON – A man who survived a fatal 2012 drive-by shooting in Boston has identified former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez as the triggerman.

Prosecutors on Tuesday asked Raychides Sanches for describing the chaotic scene during a hearing in Suffolk Superior Court.

On the question of who the shooter was, Sanchez said: “Hernandez” and nodded in his direction.

Sanchez made the identification on a pro forma hearing for Hernandez, who is charged in the deaths of Safiro Furtado and Daniel de Abreu.

Prosecutors say Hernandez shot the men after one of them bumped into him at a nightclub. He pleaded not guilty.

Hernandez is already serving a life sentence for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd.
