Shooting suspect says hit wasn't meant for Big Papi

The suspects in David Ortiz’s shooting got paid $7,800 police say. Six are in custody

So far six have been arrested, while the search continues for a seventh suspect.

On Thursday, the prominent Dominican hip-hop artist Secreto, who was with Ortiz during the attack, said via Instagram that he ran because he thought the shooter was aiming for him.

Ferreyra Cruz is also believed to be the same man wanted in a pair of armed street robberies on December 22 in Clifton, New Jersey, a detective lieutenant, Robert Bracken, with the city's police department told The Star-Ledger newspaper of Newark, New Jersey.

Photos provided by the Dominican Republic National Police, June 12, 2019 show the suspects detained in connection with the shooting of former Red Sox star David Ortiz in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Clifton police say Cruz was one of our four masked men who brandished handguns and robbed two men as they walked down the street. He has been charged with being an accomplice to attempted murder.

The alleged gunman is seen on surveillance video exiting the vehicle before mounting the motorcycle. Meanwhile, a Pennsylvania prosecutor said he believes another suspect in the Ortiz shooting is wanted for attempted homicide in the state.


At least one other suspect remains at large, though The Associated Press has reported that police are pursuing additional suspects.

Investigators spoke with Féliz Garcia at a local hospital and were then able to locate the other five suspects now in custody.

Polfirio Allende Dechamps Vasquez - Authorities say Vasquez was also in one of the cars near the Dial and later took the gun from Acosta before burying it on his property.

Pennsylvania authorities have 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 US court documents.

"The victim stated Rivas-Clase threatened to have him killed a few days before the shooting occurred", the Berks County Sheriff's Office said in a statement posted on its Facebook page following the April 22, 2018, incident.
