Alexander Bradley has alleged Aaron Hernandez shot him in the face in February after the two argued.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Authorities say a fugitive with ties to former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez has been taken into custody in Connecticut.

The U.S. Marshals Service says Alexander Bradley of East Hartford was found Friday at a home in Hartford.

Bradley has alleged in a lawsuit that Hernandez shot him in the face in February after they argued at a Miami strip club.

Bradley had been ordered to appear before a grand jury in Massachusetts that's investigating a shooting last year in Boston, which has been linked to Hernandez. But Bradley failed to appear in court last month.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty in the shooting death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, whose body was found in June not far from Hernandez's mansion in North Attleborough, Mass.
