The gunman suspected of shooting David Ortiz at a bar in the Dominican Republic on Sunday night was arrested Wednesday as part of a group authorities said were offered $400,000 Dominican pesos, or about $7,800 US dollars, for a coordinated hit on the former Red Sox player, according to NBC News.
Eddy Vladimir Feliz Garcia, in custody in connection with the shooting of Ortiz, is transferred by police to court in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic on Tuesday.
"His condition is guarded, and he will remain in the ICU for the coming days, but he is making good progress toward recovery", Tiffany Ortiz said in the statement.
David Ortiz had a second surgery after arriving in Boston. Ortiz was immediately brought to a hospital in the DR where he received surgery that involved parts of his organs being removed.
"I am so disappointed to know that someone like David who saved so many lives can have someone after his life", he said.
Gods and Monsters is Ubisoft's Answer to Breath of the Wild
As the trailer says, when humans are in trouble they look to the gods, but when the gods are in trouble, they look to you. Gods and Monsters will also be available as part of Ubisoft's newly announced subscription service Uplay+.
Authorities detained Ramon "Rolfie" Martinez Perez and Eddy Vladimir Feliz Garcia, reported NBC News.
Witnesses confirmed, and security camera footage showed, a sophisticated attempt by two men on a motorcycle and two groups of other people in cars to kill Ortiz, prosecutors assert in the document.
Court documents also said the two men were seen on security camera footage talking with other people in Ortiz's vehicle and another Hyundai in a nearby street before the shooting.
The other suspects, authorities said, were parked nearby in a pair of Hyundai automobiles at the time of the attack.
According to Dominican Chief of Police Ney A. Bautista, "several individuals" were paid less than the equivalent of $8,000 to carry out the act, and an alleged shooter has been arrested. Dominican prosecutors identified one of the four as Oliver Moises Mirabal Acosta, according to court documents obtained by the Associated Press.
