Hotel security director testifies at Aaron Hernandez trial

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) — A security chief at a Boston hotel is testifying in the murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez a day after a valet told jurors he saw Hernandez with what he believed to be a gun two nights before the 2013 killing.

Hernandez was out that night with Odin Lloyd, who was shot to death two nights later. Lloyd was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee.

The valet testified Tuesday that he saw Hernandez with what he thought was a semiautomatic handgun tucked into his waistband outside the W Hotel. The defense questioned whether he would have been able to identify it from his vantage point, looking across a sidewalk and through an SUV window.

The security director of the W is testifying Wednesday.
