The suspects in David Ortiz’s shooting got paid $7,800 police say. Six are in custody

Police in the Dominican Republic have detained six people in connection with the incident.

Investigators recovered the gunman's firearm buried in the home of one of the suspects in the province of Mao, police said.

Valdes said Ferreira-Cruz was charged but never apprehended.

Police are searching for a suspect in what they now call an $8,000 hit job.

Berks County District Attorney John Adams told the Associated Press Thursday he believes it's the same suspect, based on the images in the mugshots and the name match. The Boston Globe reports that Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, director of the DR's national police, announced Wednesday that investigators have determined the men were offered 400,000 Dominican pesos, which works out to around $7,800 USA dollars, to kill Ortiz. They said it was a coordinated attack for which each allegedly received $8,000 in US dollars.

Officials also haven't offered a motive. Police have revealed that Ortiz' shooting was an assassination attempt. Neither the Globe nor the New York Times, for instance, have reported on such a line of investigation.

State government separately has spent millions of dollars to provide defence lawyers to public employees charged in the case. Although prosecutors cautioned that Lyon and others could be charged again, Chamberlain said he's not anxious .

The alleged shooter has been taken into custody, though an investigation is ongoing. The bullet exited his stomach.

Ortiz is hospitalized at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was admitted Monday night.

Doctors have removed Ortiz's gall bladder and parts of his intestine, his spokesman said. He also reportedly suffered permanent damage to his liver.

The former Boston slugger since has been transported to Massachusetts General Hospital, and Tiffany Ortiz released a statement for the third consecutive day Thursday, this time expressing gratitude for those who sprung into action following the bad incident in the D.R.

His daughter, Alexandria Ortiz, added on Instagram: "C$3 haos has struck but my dad hasn't complained once".
