The 38-year-old suspect reportedly told police that a verbal altercation ensued between him and the victim, but maintained that he did not shoot him, Local 10 noted.
The argument escalated when one of the victims reportedly told the suspect to “[c]ome on let’s go outside and fight,” the outlet noted, citing a police report. As the two made their way outside of the club, a witness reportedly told cops that Hernandez booked it to his car as the brothers followed him to it.
