Chris Johnson seemingly dismisses murder-for-hire allegations as ‘false news’
Some bombshell allegations about a murder-for-hire plot involving Chris Johnson surfaced on Thursday, and the former NFL star appears to have issued a denial.
According to a report from TMZ, Johnson paid a well-known Florida gang member a sum of money to kill two men who were believed to be responsible for shooting Johnson and two of his friends back in 2015. Johnson suffered a gunshot wound to the shoulder in the drive-by shooting, while one of his friends died and another was also shot. Johnson tweeted the following message not long after the report came out.

Johnson has not been charged with any crime, but TMZ said investigators have an informant who told them Johnson paid a man named Dominic Bolden money and helped him become the leader of a drug organization in exchange for Bolden killing the men who were suspected of shooting Johnson. Johnson’s representatives said there is “no validity to any of these accusations.”
