New photos show the aftermath of inmates rioting in the weeks before Aaron Hernandez's shocking suicide — see them here.
These shocking photos show the aftermath of a wild riot at the prison where former NFL star Aaron Hernandez committed suicide last month.
Prisoners trashed objects, including sprinklers and a computer, and made weapons by ripping off table legs in a housing unit at the Souza Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts.
The drama unfolded earlier this year on January 9 after a fight between two gang members descended into a three-hour-long riot involving 46 prisoners.
Corrections officers had to call in a special operations unit, which used pepper spray on the marauding felons, who were searched and then returned to their cells.
Remarkably no injuries were reported.
Hernandez, 27, was found dead on April 19 after hanging himself with a bed sheet tied to his cell window.
Authorities attempted to revive the athlete, but he was later pronounced dead by 4:07 a.m at UMass Memorial Hospital in Leominster.
