Focus on 2012 murders brings new pain to victims’ families

The disclosure by law enforcement officials that Aaron Hernandez is being investigated in connection with a deadly double shooting in Boston’s South End last year that claimed the lives of two Dorchester men caused a flood of emotion for their families this week.

On July 16, 2012, someone from a silver or gray SUV opened fire on a BMW sedan stopped at a traffic light at the corner of Shawmut Avenue and Herald Street, killing Daniel Abreu, 29, and Safiro Furtado, 28, according to Boston Police. Another passenger was wounded. Two other occupants fled the car unharmed.
