HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

A local man, who is suing former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez, has been ordered to appear before a grand jury in Massachusetts.

On Friday, a judge at Hartford Superior Court ordered Alexander Bradley to appear before a Massachusetts grand jury that is investigating the Bristol native for murder.

Bradley claims Hernandez shot him in a car driving after the strip club in Florida last February. Following the shooting, Bradley lost an eye.

Hernandez has been charged in connection with the murder of a semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd and Massachusetts authorities want to hear from Bradley in their grand jury investigation.

"Mr. Bradley was previously injured there," Bradley's attorney Robert Pickering said. "He has a doctor's appointment and surgery in Florida on the 10th, He can't miss this appointment. He has serious health concerns."

Bradley and Pickering tried to challenge the application and were denied.

"I need five days, I cannot fly," Bradley said. "I need permission to fly."

Bradley told a judge that he is still suffering and needs to have a cosmetic procedure done in Florida on July 10, which is a week before the grand jury investigation on July 17.

"He's having three procedures, including cleaning, and sanitizing," Pickering said. "Two fixing the tracking of his eyeball and they're going to shave his eye."

"The Commonwealth believes that given the alleged similarities between these two incidents, which are reasonably close in time, that Alexander Bradley's testimony is material and relevant to the grand jury's inquiry," court papers from Massachusetts stated.

Judge Joan Alexander agreed.

"If you fail to show without good cause it will be punishable provided by the law," Alexander said.

Bradley did not comment after his court hearing Friday.

According to court papers outlining the Palm Beach County sheriff's shooting report, "when repeatedly asked if he knew who shot him Bradley, contrary to his civil complaint, said 'no.'"

"He never made statements to mass investigators about the offense in Florida or statements to Florida authorities," Pickering said.

Bradley has pending burglary and other charges in Hartford as well.
