Former Boston Red Sox slugger and Dominican star David Ortiz was shot and wounded at an entertainment center in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, his father told ESPN's Enrique Rojas.

According to a report from Dominican TV station CDN 37, Ortiz was shot in the leg.

A person who was at the scene told ESPN that Ortiz was wounded by a man, who is being detained, while he was in the "Dial" club in the eastern part of the Dominican capital, and that Ortiz was transferred to the Corazones Unidos clinic, which is located in the center of the city.

David Ortiz's father says David is resting, there were no affected organs and total recovery is expected.

Dominican Republic police announces that it was an attempt of murder on David Ortiz not a robbery attempt as they reported earlier.

Overnight update on David Ortiz: In the shooting, he suffered liver damage and his gall bladder and parts of his colon were removed.

There's a chilling surveillance video of the shooting, but I won't post it here. The shooter just walked up behind Ortiz and shot him. Fortunately, he was a lousy shot.

Then this happened:

Dominican Republic police: Suspects were hired to shoot David Ortiz; six detained

Quote:
Dominican Republic police director Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte said at a news conference Wednesday that the suspects in the shooting of David Ortiz had been hired to do so.

According to Bautista, a group of criminals had charged 400,000 Dominican pesos (about $7,800) to shoot the former Boston Red Sox star.

The authorities did not disclose a motive that led to the planning of the attack and did not specify who it was that was paying for the shooting.

Six suspects have been detained – including the alleged gunman – in connection to the attack on Ortiz, which took place at a bar in Santo Domingo on Sunday night.

David Ortiz was not the intended target, shooting suspect claims

Quote:
In new cellphone video from his holding cell, the man accused of shooting David "Big Papi" Ortiz at a Santo Domingo bar late Sunday claims the Boston Red Sox icon was not his intended target. Dominican police say Rolfy Ferreyra Cruz confessed to shooting Ortiz from point-blank range as part of a nearly $8,000 hit job.

In the video, Cruz peered through the barred window of his holding cell trying to get a message to reporters saying "it's not David … I was confused." Cruz claims "they only told me the color of his clothes," appearing to indicate he didn't realize it was Ortiz when he fired the shot.

Cruz is one of nine suspects detained in connection with the shooting at the Dial Bar and Lounge. Police rushed the suspects to and from court Thursday running through angry crowds and past reporters as they shouted questions. They tossed each of the prisoners into pickup trucks before jumping in the back themselves and racing off.

I would certainly have second and third thoughts before vacationing in the DR.

Oops!

Dominican officials say alleged gunman mistook Big Papi for someone else

Local angles: The shooter is originally from Reading, Pa. Another suspect, nicknamed The Surgeon, is also wanted for attempted murder in Reading and is still on the loose. :shock:

Message from Tiffany Ortiz:

Quote:
Earlier this week, David underwent a third surgery for complications resulting from his gunshot wound. The operation was performed by Dr. David King at Massachusetts General Hospital. David is recovering well and is in good spirits.

We continue to be incredibly appreciative of the kindness and compassion shown to David and to our entire family during this difficult time.


It has been over a month since the shooting.
