According to eye witnesses, a lone shooter jumped off his motorcycle, walked-up to Ortiz, and opened fire "without saying a word".

Photos provided by the Dominican Republic National Police, June 12, 2019 show the suspects detained in connection with the shooting of former Red Sox star David Ortiz in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. When prosecutors provided an update on the case, it was reported that Ortiz was targeted in an orchestrated hit with the perpetrators being paid just under $8,000.

Ferreira-Cruz, of Reading, Penn., is also facing armed robbery charges in New Jersey.

"It wasn't supposed to be David", he said, his words translated from Spanish. Bail was set at $10,000. His attorney in that case did not immediately return a message, while court records do not list an attorney in the attempted homicide case.

Pennsylvania authorities released a mug shot of Rivas-Clase that strongly resembles the suspect in an image provided by Dominican authorities, who provided the same name but without the hyphen listed in US court documents.

Meanwhile, the father of another suspect in Sunday's shooting of Ortiz at a bar said his son is a member of gang of hired assassins and low-level drug dealers known as the Gilberts. The vehicle was driven by Oliver Moises Mirabal Acosta, who is accused of taking possession of the firearm used in the attack and then giving it to another suspect.

The sports community at large was shocked to find out that David Ortiz had been shot in his own country of the Dominican Republic, where the baseball legend was reportedly shot in the back at point-blank range. That victim, like Ortiz, survived a bullet wound to the back.

The alleged gunman is seen on surveillance video exiting the vehicle before mounting the motorcycle.

According to Associated Press, the burglars also shot 2 others alongside Ortiz.

Ortiz, known as Big Papi, is recovering and in guarded condition at a Boston hospital.

Nunez couldn't say enough about everything Ortiz has done for the Dominican Republic.

Ortiz's No. 34 was retired by the Red Sox following his playing career.
