Update: David Ortiz Reportedly Target Of Hired Hitmen
Dominican Republic officials believe that David Ortiz was targeted by hired hitmen.
The Daily Mail reports that police sources exclusively confirmed to them that it was a planned hit executed by two cops who were hired by a Dominican drug lord. The drug lord allegedly thought that Ortiz was having an affair with his wife.
As of now, one suspected shooter identified as Eddy Feliz Garcia is in custody.
Ortiz’s rep, Leo Lopez, said that “It was an act of hired killers.”
“If we had known that there was a dangerous situation, he would not have been there at that time,” Lopez added.
As we reported, Ortiz is currently recovering from surgery as he had to have part of his, colon, intestines and gallbladder removed following the shooting at the Dial Bar and Lounge on Sunday.
Once he is stable he will be transported to a hospital in Boston on a Red Sox jet.
