Guns, gangs, violence ... the warning signs were well-documented before Aaron Hernandez became a violent killer.
Back when Aaron was a high school football star, there were rumors he was affiliated with the Bristol Bloods street gang in Connecticut.
This photo of 17-year-old Aaron throwing up the gang signs in 2007 while dressed head to toe in red clothing seemed to back that up.
Two years later, when Aaron when was 19 and a rising college football star at the University of Florida, Hernandez posed for a gun selfie with a pistol in 2009. Officials later argued the gun in the photo was used to murder Odin Lloyd.
In 2010, Hernandez was drafted by the New England Patriots in the 4th round.
