- This "chance encounter" inside the club led to a series of events that led to the victims' murder.
- At around 2 a.m., Furtado and Abreu left the club, driving down Tremont Street.
- Unbeknownst to them, Hernandez allegedly followed behind in an SUV.
- When the victims' car stopped at a red light at Shawmut Avenue, waiting to turn onto Herald Street, the SUV pulled up beside the car on the right. Abreu was driving.
