Suspect in shooting of David Ortiz to face judge in Dominican Republic

Former baseball star David Ortiz wounded in Dominican Republic shooting

Former baseball star David Ortiz wounded in Dominican Republic shooting

The Red Sox said in a statement that Ortiz was wounded in the "lower back/abdominal region" and that the team offered his family "all available resources to aid in his recovery".

Ortiz, who starred for the Boston Red Sox for 14 seasons before retiring in 2016, underwent surgery at the Abel Gonzalez clinic. Salvador then drove a wounded Ortiz to the hospital, telling reporters they had a brief conversation in the auto as he urged the baseball great to stay calm and breathe. He is still in the intensive care unit, and doctors say he is in stable condition.

"Lastly, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredible hard time", her statement reads.

From former President Barack Obama: "Six years ago, David Ortiz's spirit and resolve helped us all begin to heal from the Boston Marathon bombing".

Ortiz played 20 Major League Baseball seasons before retiring at the end of the 2016 season.

Reports have since surfaced that Big Papi was shot as a result of dealing with the wife of a drug lord, which might explain why the shooter came into the bar and only targeted him.

The first thing Ortiz asked about when he regained consciousness was his family, local doctors said.

But they said they were hunting for more, including the man who was on the back of the Baja Platina motorcycle allegedly driven by Garcia. The motive was initially reported to be robbery, but security-camera footage from the lounge suggested a coordinated ambush. Lopez said the 43-year-old athlete's liver was also damaged in Sunday night's shooting.

Jhoel Lopez, a Dominican television host, was shot in the leg, and his injuries were not considered life-threatening. Duran declined to elaborate on what the suspect told the police, or if he was the man seen in the video pulling the trigger.

Police are searching for a second suspect.

Ortiz was then taken by ambulance, with a police escort, to Massachusetts General Hospital, where he will continue to receive medical attention. The Red Sox retired his number the following year.

On Monday night at Boston's Fenway Park, the Red Sox and the team's fans made it clear that their beloved "Big Papi" was in their thoughts and prayers.

He led Boston Red Sox to three World Series championships and hit 541 home runs.
