Ex-Boston slugger David Ortiz shot at Dominican Republic bar

David Ortiz

David Ortiz underwent another round of surgery on Monday night after he arrived in Boston, and we have heard several positive updates about his health since. Police have said the shooting was not a robbery.

As of the most recent reports, Ortiz, a beloved figure in the Dominican Republic, in Boston, and across baseball, is reportedly in stable condition.

Here is the footage that has since surfaced of two women in a D.R. hospital fighting each other while Ortiz was in the back having surgery.

Big Papi and the 2013 Red Sox went on to win the World Series, earning them a trip to visit Obama in the White House in 2014, where Ortiz snapped a selfie with the then-president. But the gunman has not been arrested, and investigators were trying to establish whether Ortiz was the target.

According to authorities, Ortiz was ambushed by man who got off a motorcycle and shot him in the back at a nightclub in Santo Domingo. Jhoel Lopez, a television host who was at the club with Ortiz, was also shot.

Ortiz's wife, Tiffany, released a statement Tuesday morning providing an update on her husband while also thanking the Red Sox and the community for their support through this obviously hard time.

Suspected terrorists kill 95
A security source at the massacre site in the village of Sobane-Kou told AFP that "a Dogon village has been virtually wiped out". The Mali government blamed "suspected terrorists" for the incursion, the BBC reported .

The Red Sox icon underwent surgery in the D.R. and was transported to Boston on Monday, where he again underwent surgery. "But I'm so disappointed to know that someone like David, who saved so many lives, can have someone after his life".

Dr. Abel Gonzalez, who performed the surgery, said part of Ortiz's intestines and liver were removed.

"But [the street hustlers] are doing their thing, and they are not in their right mind, no matter who is who, and I do not want to walk with an AK-47 over to a vehicle there, I do not want to go full of guns there because I'm not a gunslinger, and I'm not a problem of any kind", Ortiz said.

He added at the time that he hoped the nation's head of police would take steps to improve security.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora has not yet reached out to Ortiz, his Red Sox teammate from 2005-08. "Thank God no amount of evil or hate can overcome a heart that big. Get well soon, Papi".

He had helped rally the city after the Boston Marathon bombings that year, giving a speech at Fenway Park, telling the crowd to stay "Boston strong". Fans responded to the shooting with an outpouring of prayers and wishes for a speedy recovery.
