Dominican police reveal new details of attack on David Ortiz

Retired Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz outside Fenway Park in Boston Thursday

He was flown to Boston late Monday night and has been "making good progress" in his recovery, according to his wife Tiffany Ortiz.

The alleged assailants had been paid 400,000 Dominican pesos, or just under $8,000, to kill Ortiz, according to Police Maj.

López said the 43-year-old athlete's liver was also damaged in Sunday night's shooting.

The motorcyclist, Eddy Vladimir Féliz Garcia, who had a 2017 arrest for drug possession, was one of several people in custody as of Tuesday afternoon, a law-enforcement official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to release details of the investigation. The gunman has not been arrested, and police say they do not yet have a motive.

"In one of the videos it was possible to observe both the accused and the shooter planning the commission of the incident right on Octavio Mejia Ricard Street, which is parallel to the place where the event took place", prosecutors said in the court document. He was beaten bloody by enraged fans of Ortiz before they turned him over to the police.

Féliz Garcia's lawyer says his client is an innocent motorcycle taxi driver who had no idea his passenger was going to commit a crime.

In a statement Tuesday, Attorney General Jean Alain Rodríguez's office said prosecutors are requesting one year of preventative detention for Garcia, who also goes by El Nata or Vladi.

The three-time World Series champion was shot in the Dominican Republic on Sunday and remains in an intensive care unit at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Ortiz was shot at a club in Santo Domingo and underwent emergency surgery to fix damage done by the bullet to both his intestines and his liver. Ortiz lost his gallbladder and part of his intestine after being shot. The former Red Sox slugger was active on the social scene there, hitting nightspots with friends who included TV personalities and Dominican reggaeton musicians.
