David Ortiz: Former Boston Red Sox star shot in back in Dominican Republic

David Ortiz was wounded in a shooting over the weekend.

Once doctors had stabilized him he was flown to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston where he underwent a second surgery.

A suspect in the shooting of former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was charged with "attempted homicide" and "criminal association" in connection to the violence in the Dominican Republic, a report said. "He's is stable, awake and resting comfortably this morning in the ICU where he is expected to remain for the next several days", the statement said.

"I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredibly hard time", Tiffany Ortiz's statement said. He first underwent surgery at a hospital in the Dominican Republic, where "Big Papi" was born and raised.

Tiffany did not speak on that.

Gonzalez said during a Monday news conference that he anticipates Ortiz making a full recovery with no restrictions.

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". The Red Sox retired his number the following year.

Police said Ortiz was shot at almost point-blank range by a man identified as Eddy Feliz Garcia, 25. One of the men shot a single bullet into Ortiz as the patrons ran for cover. Ortiz's father, Leo, told local media he had no idea why someone would have shot at his son. Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, the director of the Dominican National Police, said a group of people at the bar surrounded the suspect and beat him before police arrived, per ESPN. "Ortiz is now in intensive care, but considered stable". He was treated at the Dario Contreras Hospital in Santo Domingo before being released to police custody.

The Red Sox arranged for an air ambulance to transport Ortiz from the Dominican Republic to Boston.
