David Ortiz shooting motive: Big Papi was not intended target, Dominican attorney general says - masslive.com

Red Sox legend David Ortiz was not the target of the attack that left him with a gunshot wound to the lower back last Sunday, Dominican attorney general Jean Alain Rodriguez told reporters (including ESPN’s Marly Rivera). Rodriguez said the target was Ortiz’s friend, Sixto David Fernandez, who was sitting at the same table at the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo.

6 suspects, including gunman, arrested in Ortiz shooting – Boston Herald

Read the article for more information.

An alleged gunman and five accomplices have been detained in the shooting of former Red Sox superstar David Ortiz, Dominican officials said Wednesday, while providing no information about why a group of young men would try to kill their country’s most beloved sports hero.

Four other suspects were also being pursued in the shooting, which witnesses said was carried out by two men on a motorcycle, assisted by two other groups of people in cars.

“At this moment, they are being interrogated and we will continue deepening the investigation to get to the truth about what happened,” Chief Prosecutor Jean Alain Rodríguez said.

“Nobody involved in this unfortunate episode will escape justice, neither those who carried it out nor the mastermind,” he said.

The national police director, Maj. Gen. Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, said the coordinator of the attack was offered 400,000 Dominican pesos, or about $7,800, to orchestrate the shooting. He said the alleged coordinator was also among those in custody.
