Jurors in the double-murder trial of ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez viewed the 104-year-old gun that prosecutors say the former Patriots star used to kill two men in a drive-by shooting in 2012.
Prosecutor Patrick Haggan held the .38-caliber Smith & Wesson revolver, that was manufactured in 1913, high for police witnesses to identify in court on Monday.
Witnesses said investigators did not find Hernandez’s fingerprints or DNA on the gun, but that usable fingerprints are only found on three to five per cent of all guns tested, reported the Boston Globe.

Hernandez is accused of later opening fire on the men at a stoplight, he has pleaded not guilty.
The revolver that was presented in court Monday was not found until nearly a year after the double-murder, when Jailene Diaz Ramos, a woman with links to Hernandez, was involved in a three-car auto crash on June 21, 2013.

Linda Kenney Baden, Hernandez’s lawyer, pointed out that Camper also determined during testing in July 2012 that the ammunition fired could have come from a .38-caliber, 9 millimeter, or .357 handgun.
Camper responded that he narrowed his findings once he had a weapon to use for comparisons.
Defense also claims that the two victims were shot dead not by Hernandez, but by marijuana dealer Alexander Bradley, who was driving the 4Runner that night, over a drug deal.

Hernandez’s lawyer Kenney Baden also asked Camper if he was aware that Bradley told authorities that the shots that killed the men were fired from a .357.
Hernandez was also charged in 2013 with shooting Bradley, who is currently serving time for shooting up a Hartford club in 2014. Hernandez is charged with witness intimidation in that altercation, which caused Bradley to lose an eye.
Prosecutors say that Hernandez shot him in an effort to silence him, and Bradley is expected to testify against him later in the trial in an immunity agreement.
Attorney Jose Baez, who helped Casey Anthony become acquitted in the death of two-year-old daughter Caylee, told jurors prosecutors had made a ‘deal with the devil’ by involving Bradley.
Hernandez is already serving a life sentence for the June 2013 fatal shooting of Odin Lloyd.
