BOSTON -- (WBZ) -- Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez has been found not guilty of murder and several other charges related to the 2012 killings of two men.

Hernandez was acquitted of all charges with the exception of possession of a firearm without a license.

He was on trial for two counts of first-degree murder in the shootings of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in Boston’s South End on July 16, 2012.

For the gun possession charge, Hernandez received 4-5 years in prison. He is already serving a life sentence for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez wiped tears from his eyes as the verdict was read.

Jurors deliberated for nearly six days and about 36 hours before reaching the verdict Friday just before 3 p.m.

Family members of both victims sobbed in court as the verdict was read.
