Dominican police reveal new details of attack on David Ortiz

Two suspects are in custody following the Sunday shooting of former Red Sox player David "Big Papi" Ortiz in the Dominican Republic, outlets reported Wednesday. In a statement, his wife Tiffany said he will remain in the ICU for the coming days but "is making good progress towards recovery".

Authorities say they've now detained five people allegedly involved in the attempted slaying at a Santo Domingo nightclub Sunday, including accused shooter Rolfy Ferreyra Cruz - also known as "Sandy".

The fifth person, motorcycle driver Eddy Vladimir Feliz Garcia, was already in custody, having been captured by police shortly after the shooting.

Multiple suspects have been arrested in connection with the shooting, and one of the men was even attacked by a nearby crowd while trying to escape after the incident.

As they submitted their written plea, La Liga said the technology used is created to exclusively generate an acoustic fingerprint.

The Red Sox flew Ortiz to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston for treatment Monday night. Enraged fans captured Feliz Garcia and beat him bloody before handing him over to police.

Former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is recovering in Boston from a two-hour exploratory surgery after being shot at a bar in his native Dominican Republic. His lawyer and his mother insist he's innocent of any wrongdoing, asserting he's a motorcycle taxi driver who unwittingly picked up the gunman as a fare and drove him to the crime scene without knowing his intentions.

The 43-year-old Ortiz frequently travelled to Santo Domingo, where his father and a sister live.

Beloved in his hometown, Ortiz traveled the unsafe streets of the Dominican capital with little or no security, trusting his fans to protect him, according to friends. Ortiz lost his gallbladder and part of his intestine after being shot.
