David Ortiz

Police in the Dominican Republic have arrested a total of five people ⁠- including alleged gunman Ramon Martínez Perez ⁠- in connection with Sunday's shooting of Red Sox legend David Ortiz, authorities announced in a press conference Wednesday.

Dominican authorities said they arrested and questioned Ramon Martinez Perez, also known by the alias Rolfie, about the Sunday night shooting, NBC News reported.

The suspected gunman who shot Ortiz was identified by police as 25-year-old Rolfy Ferreyra Cruz.

The 43-year-old Ortiz frequently travelled to Santo Domingo, where his father and a sister live.

Red Sox infielder Eduardo Nunez says he got to check in with David Ortiz in the wake of his shooting earlier this week in the Dominican Republic.

He was able to sit up and take some steps as he recuperates in Massachusetts General Hospital's intensive care unit, his wife, Tiffany, said in a statement Wednesday.

Prosecutors said security camera footage showed two men on the motorcycle talking with other people in a gray Hyundai Accent and in another Hyundai in a nearby street before the shooting.

Afterward, police conducted "an exhaustive investigation" and examined video surveillance that showed the shooter running toward the Hyundai and reuniting with the people inside the vehicle.

A mug shot released by Pennsylvania officials resembles a suspect sought in the shooting of Ortiz in the Dominican Republic, who had the same name but without the hyphen listed in us court documents, according to authorities. Police said Cruz confessed to shooting Ortiz.

Four other men, including Joel Rodriguez Cruz, Oliver Moises Mirabal Acosta, Reynaldo Rodriguez Valenzuela and Polfirio Allende Deschamps Vazquez, were also arrested.

"These individuals, each one of them, all of them, have been jailed and will go before a court", Bautista Almonte said.

Former Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is recovering in Boston from a two-hour exploratory surgery after being shot at a bar in his native Dominican Republic.

Authorities have declined to discuss a possible motive.

Ortiz is one of the most beloved figures in sports history in the Dominican Republic and Boston, a fearsome power hitter with a ready smile. "Garcia was charged Tuesday with being an accomplice to the murder", reports Fox.
