MIAMI (AP) — Documents show a man linked to the murder case against former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez told police Hernandez admitted firing the fatal shots.

Carlos Ortiz reportedly told Massachusetts investigators that another man, Ernest Wallace, said Hernandez admitted shooting Odin Lloyd in an industrial park near Hernandez’s Massachusetts home.

The documents were filed in court by the Miramar, Fla., police department to justify a search of Wallace’s home in that city.

The documents also say that while investigating Lloyd’s killing, police did searches in Bristol, Conn., that turned up a vehicle wanted in connection with a July 2012 double homicide in Boston.

Police say the vehicle had been rented in the name of Hernandez.

Hernandez’s legal team did not return email messages Tuesday.
