David Ortiz who is 43-years old had been in stable condition, in intensive care at a Santo Domingo hospital after doctors removed his gallbladder and part of his intestine. His liver was also damaged in the shooting Sunday night just before nine o’clock as he sat at a table, at an outside area of the Dial Bar and Lounge. The Red Sox offered "all available resources" and sent an air ambulance to bring him back to Boston. The gunman was arrested, and the motive for the shooting is under investigation, with authorities trying to determine whether Ortiz was the target. The operator of the motorcycle that was carrying the gunman was captured and beaten by a crowd of people at the bar. A witness says the gunman said nothing, just fired once.
