    David Ortiz shot in Dominican Republic

    Hope Big Papi is ok.

    Enrique Rojas of ESPN reports that legendary Red Sox' slugger David Ortiz was shot in the leg during an attempted robbery attempt on Sunday in the Dominican Republic.

    Ortiz is currently being transported to the hospital. His condition is unknown at the moment. The suspected shooter is in custody. We're hoping for the best for Big Papi and our thoughts and prayers go out to Ortiz and his family at this difficult time. We'll pass along any updates as more information becomes available.

    Crazy. There’s video on Twitter of his assaillant being kicked and assaulted in retaliation. He was shot in the leg, so hope all is well

    I just spoke to @dSoldevila who is at the clinic where David Ortiz is currently being treated. Dionisio said me that the attending doctor told him that David was shot in the lower back and the bullet went through and through; he’s currently in surgery.

    [email protected] - A local network in the DR - Tweeted this picture who they identified as one of the doctors that took care of David Ortiz; they say he just informed them that he is out of danger.

    Per the report, Ortiz was shot in a burglary at the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo, and transported to a local hospital. A suspect has been arrested, according to Dominican journalist Jose Monegro.

    Ortiz was shot in the lower back, and the bullet exited through his stomach, according to ESPN. The 43-year-old underwent surgery, and reportedly told the emergency room doctor: “Please don’t let me die, I’m a good man.”

    According to Dominican journalist Dionisio Soldevilla, Ortiz is currently in stable condition.

    Reports are saying that there are several suspects in the robbery with some still at large.

    Felix Durán Mejia, a spokesman for the Dominican National Police.
    Durán Mejia confirmed to CNN that Ortiz was shot in the back in "an incident that took place at Dial Discotheque in Santo Domingo." Durán Mejia said Ortiz was shot by a motorcyclist who approached Ortiz directly.
    edit: Other reports say it was not a robbery.

    Ortiz's father told reporters late Sunday night that the bullet didn't hit any organs, but Dominican journalist Leo Lopez informed ESPN on Monday morning that doctors "had to remove parts of the intestines and the colon and remove the gallbladder," and that the Red Sox legend also suffered some liver damage. Ortiz continues to be treated by doctors at a hospital in Santo Domingo. He was shot in the back by a motorcyclist outside the Dial Discotheque on Sunday. Dominican television host Jhoel Lopez was also struck. Thoughts and prayers go out to both.

    The DR seems to be a very bad place, with several deaths to Americans the last few weeks and now this. Perhaps a man of his means could find a safer place to live.

    I did hear on the radio today that he was in good condition although being shot is never good. We sure live in a crazy world. Hope Big Papi and talk show host are both ok.

    According to Leo López, who works as David Ortiz’s assistant and press representative, his last surgery ended at 3:30am and he’ll remain in intensive care for the next 24 hours. López said doctors had to remove Ortiz’s gallbladder and control bleeding from his liver and bowel.

    Those organs getting shot also have a high risk of infection. This is much worse than the original reports.
