David Ortiz

But the key questions of by whom and why remain unanswered.

The Dominican Republic's chief prosecutor Jean Alain Rodriguez Sanchez spoke at a news conference on Wednesday. "Certainly that will continue". Surgeons there operated for six hours to fix damage to his intestines and liver, also removing his gallbladder.

"His condition is guarded and he will remain in the ICU for the coming days, but he is making good progress towards recovery", his wife, Tiffany Ortiz, said in a statement issued by the Boston Red Sox.

Tiffany Ortiz asked for privacy "while David continues to heal".

Police quickly arrested the suspected motorbike driver, identified as Eddy Feliz Garcia, who was detained and beaten by bystanders at the scene.

A witness told police he saw Féliz García and the gunman get into a auto that was parked near the scene of the shooting before gunfire erupted, the charging documents say.

The Berks County Sheriff's Office confirmed to ABC News on Thursday that they have been looking for Rivas-Clase since April 2018, when he was identified as a suspect involved in the shooting of a man in Reading.

The Dominican Republic has one of the highest murder rates in the world, with most homicides committed during robberies, according to the U.S. State Department.


David Ortiz had a second surgery after arriving in Boston.

The bullet struck Ortiz in the back and went through his stomach, police said.

Doctors in Santo Domingo removed Ortiz's gallbladder and part of his intestines during emergency surgery, and he was flown to Boston for further treatment Monday night, undergoing two hours of exploratory surgery.

Four other men, including Joel Rodriguez Cruz, Oliver Moises Mirabal Acosta, Reynaldo Rodriguez Valenzuela and Polfirio Allende Deschamps Vazquez, were also arrested. In a court appearance Tuesday night, he was charged as an accomplice to an attempted murder.

Fans at walk past a photograph of Boston Red Sox's David Ortiz before a baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston, Oct. 1, 2016. Authorities added that neither the director of the group nor the motive have been determined.

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 USA court documents.

Police Maj. Gen. Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte says the coordinator of the shooting of David Ortiz was offered 400,000 Dominican pesos, or about $7,800, to carry out the crime.
