Report: Ex-RB Johnson suspect in murder-for-hire

Former All-Pro running back Chris Johnson has been linked to a murder-for-hire plot that resulted in the deaths of two men in 2016, TMZ Sports reported Thursday.TMZ said Johnson hasn’t been charged but is suspected of paying “a noted Florida gang member” to kill two men whom he believed shot at him and a friend in 2015.”There’s no validity to any of these accusations,” a representative for Johnson told TMZ.In March 2015, Johnson was a passenger in a Jeep traveling in Orlando, Fla., and was shot in the right shoulder in a drive-by shooting. The driver, Johnson’s friend, was shot in the head and died.At the time, police said they believed the Jeep was targeted. Now, according to the TMZ report, court documents say “intelligence gathered suggested [the shooting] was a gang related murder attempt on Chris Johnson.”The men suspected in the Orlando incident were shot dead in 2016 — one in January and one in June.TMZ said that in exchange for killing the suspected shooters, Johnson paid the alleged gang leader, Dominic Bolden, by giving him “funds and an individual” who could help him form a drug trafficking organization.
