Former NFL player Chris Johnson is being accused of funding a hire-for-murder that left two men dead, the two men who allegedly killed Johnson’s friend in 2015.
Officials believe that Johnson rewarded a Florida gang member, Dominic Bolden, with cash after he allegedly killed the two men who allegedly opened fire on a Jeep Johnson was in back in 2015 with his friend. Johnson suffered a gun shot wound to the shoulder, while his friend did not survive.
Officials say that months later Bolden, shot and killed the men on two different dates. Court documents say that an informant told officials that as a reward, Johnson supplied Bolden “with funds and an individual who could continually supply Dominic Bolden with as much narcotics as needed to supply the DTO,” which helped Bolden elevate his ranking, becoming the gang’s leader.
Johnson is denying all allegations.
