He was immediately rushed to a local hospital, where doctors reportedly performed six hours of surgery.

"Doctors say that David is out of danger, thank God", Ortiz's father, Leo Ortiz, told ESPN. I love David Ortiz.

"I would be hard-pressed to think of anyone more beloved than David", Kennedy said on Monday.

She also expressed gratitude to the Red Sox organization, the "amazing" MGH staff, and fans for "the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredibly hard time". Two men approached the club on motorcycles, and at least one opened fire and shot Ortiz in the back. - Incident took place at a bar/lounge in Ortiz's native Dominican Republic. He is expected to fully recover. - During the surgery, Ortiz's gallbladder and a piece of his intestine were removed. - A suspect was beaten by a crowd at the venue and is now in police custody.

Just 24 hours after he was shot, the Boston Red Sox arranged for an medical air transport to bring him back to Boston to be treated. Lopez suffered non-life threatening injuries when he was struck in the leg, apparently by the same bullet that hit Ortiz. - Security camera footage shows the attack was not an attempted robbery, but perhaps an ambush.
