(NECN) - New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft made his first public statements since former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez's arrest in a murder investigation.

Kraft invited a small group of non-TV reporters into his office Monday to discuss Hernandez.

According to the Boston Herald's Ron Borges, one of the reporters, Kraft said the team knew Hernandez was "immature", but didn't think his off-field activities would ever lead to a murder charge.

"No one in our organization was aware of any of these kind of connections. If it's true, I'm just shocked. Our whole organization has been duped," he said.
