DR prosecutor vows no impunity in Ortiz shooting

Footage indicates sophisticated attack on former Red Sox hero David Ortiz David Ortiz: Former Boston Red Sox star recovering from surgery after shooting

Nunez, who is friends with Ortiz and shares an agent with the former Red Sox star, told ESPN's Marly Rivera that he spoke with Ortiz on the phone Tuesday, less than two days after the shooting at a club in Santo Domingo.

"Just thinking about the fact that this happened to him in the Dominican Republic, it is unimaginable", Nunez said, per ESPN. He said the alleged coordinator also is in custody.

Authorities are still on the hunt for a seventh suspect in Sunday's night's shooting in Santo Domingo, the Associated Press reports.

They promised, however, that all those who targeted Ortiz in the baseball-crazy Caribbean country would be brought to justice.

Police Maj. Gen. Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte said the people behind the shooting of David Ortiz were paid $7,800.

Ortiz was in stable enough condition to be flown back to Boston, where he underwent a second surgery.

The Red Sox retired his number, 34, in 2017 - a year after he retired - and Boston renamed a bridge and a stretch of road outside Fenway Park in his honor.

Although Nunez said he was happy to hear that Ortiz is recovering, he said Dominican players feel "embarrassed" that a "legend" like Ortiz was shot in their homeland.

Nunez is also one of the few individuals outside of Ortiz's family known to have spoken with him since Sunday.

Six suspects, including the alleged gunman, have been detained.

Investigators recovered the gunman's firearm buried in the home of one of the suspects in the province of Mao, police said.

The Dominican national police took Martinez Peres into custody Tuesday, the same day the another suspect, Eddy Vladimir Feliz Garcia, appeared in court.

The alleged gunman is seen on surveillance video exiting the auto before mounting the motorcycle.

"Nobody involved in this lamentable episode will remain in impunity, not even the material or intellectual author" of the crime, chief prosecutor Jean Alain Rodriguez said Wednesday.

The Red Sox flew Ortiz to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston for treatment Monday night.

Prosecutors have said the two men on the motorcycle were seen on security camera footage talking with other people in a gray Hyundai Accent and in another Hyundai on a nearby street before the shooting.

According to court documents obtained by the AP, Feliz Garcia botched the getaway by losing control of his motorcycle.
