BRISTOL, Conn. (WLNE) — The older brother of Aaron Hernandez is expected to be in court Tuesday for allegedly planning shootings at Brown University and the University of Connecticut.

A police report obtained by ABC 6 News said several people called police after becoming concerned about the erratic behavior of Dennis “D.J.” Hernandez earlier this month.

Police released the body-worn camera footage of the arrest of D.J. on July 18.

D.J. allegedly threatened to kill police while being arrested in Bristol, Connecticut, and was heard in the video saying, “Shoot me.”

The details of the report include that someone told police D.J. was “extremely sick” and that his “mental health is continuing to deteriorate.”
