Aaron Hernadez is regarded as one of the elite tight ends in the NFL.

Police on Saturday searched the Massachusetts home of New England Patriots football player Aaron Hernandez in connection with the shooting death of a 27-year-old man earlier this week, local media reported.

Hernandez, a 23-year-old tight end and rising star in the NFL, is at the center of an investigation into the death of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player for the Boston Bandits.

Lloyd's body was discovered on Monday in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's home in North Attleborough, some 40 miles south of Boston, near Gillette Stadium, where the Patriots play.

About a dozen law-enforcement officers arrived at Hernandez's home on Saturday afternoon, the Boston Globe and local radio station WBZ reported. The Globe published a photo showing two Massachusetts State Police vehicles and another marked police car parked in the sprawling home's driveway.

A state police spokesman declined to comment on Saturday's activity at Hernandez's home. The player's lawyer and a spokeswoman for the local prosecutor's office did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
